During a christening (a term often used when baptising a child) your child will be baptised with water. It’s the start of an amazing journey of faith for your child and a special day for all your friends and family.
Children are welcome in our church community. Infants are baptised on the basis of faith expressed by believing parent/s and godparent/s with the understanding that their child will confirm their own personal faith in Jesus when they are old enough to do so.
Your child is precious to you and precious to God. You want the very best for them, and so does God. You want them to make right choices in life, for themselves and for others. A christening is just the beginning of this and so much more.
Over the years to come, it’s a journey you’ll share together with your child by:
Being there for your child to talk to about the bigger questions of life – questions about hope, faith and love.
Praying for your child through the ups and downs of their faith journey.
Showing them practically how to make those good choices in life.
Helping them to learn more about their Christian faith, through their church and in other ways.
So it’s a commitment to start as you mean to go on.
