Information on Baptisms
Baptisms occur on the second Sunday of each month as part of the morning service. The service begins at 10.00am.
We conduct baptisms for both children and adults. Family and friends are invited to be a part of this significant church occasion.
We ask that you remain for the whole service as both an act of appreciation and affirmation that the congregation on this day pauses to make special recognition of your child. Photographs in the church are permitted at the time of the baptism. Thereafter we observe a formality until the end of the service.
Please note that during the service, the offering plates will be passed to all people present. We encourage visitors to make a generous donation to mark this important event.
Can we have godparents?
Yes you can. It is your choice whether or not you have godparents.
How long does the service take?
The service lasts until approximately 11.15am to 11.30am. The baptism is at the start of the service. After the baptismal part of the service we strongly encourage all children to attend the crèche or youth group.
Do we leave after the baptism?
We ask that you stay for the whole service on this special day.
Do you have child care facilities?
Yes we do! After the baptismal part of the service we strongly encourage all children to attend the crèche or youth group. Children in the crèche and youth group are cared for by experienced and qualified carers. Parents can be assured that every care is taken with the children.
You are asked to leave your children in the crèche or youth group and then return to the church service.
Do we receive a certificate?
Yes, your child will receive a certificate to signify this special day.
