Baptism celebrates a new beginning as a member of Christ's body, the Church. To seek Baptism for a child or an adult is to say that you want to give them the gift of being part of God's family and to have God involved in their life.

Things You Need to Know

Before organising a Baptism you will need to think about who you want to have as sponsors or godparents. Godparents of children have a very great responsibility. During the service they make a promise to God that the child will be brought up as a Christian. Make sure that they are aware of this before allowing them to accept the privilege of being your child's godparent.

To be a godparent or sponsor a person must have themselves been baptised. If they are not baptised you may like to invite them to consider baptism for themselves.

Due to the high demand for Baptisms at the Church, arrangements usually need to be made at least 2-3 months in advance.
