Christening/Baptism

Cross Necklace

A service of Baptism is to welcome people (whatever their age) into the Christian faith and the church family. 

Obviously your baby cannot make the decision to become a Christian for him/herself at the moment; so children are baptised on the understanding that at least one of their parents has chosen to follow Jesus and will bring the child up within the family of the church. 

The baptism service involves parents and Godparents making promises of Christian commitment both for themselves and for the child. Godparents must by law be themselves baptised. It is obviously important that these promises, which are made before God, are understood and made honestly.
