In baptism, we thank God for His gift of life and publicly acknowledge His love. In the Anglican church we welcome children to baptism where their parents desire it. Some people refer to this as Christening.
Baptism is a ‘sacrament’, to symbolise grace and is in the Christian tradition that is traced back to Jesus himself being baptised in the river Jordan.
In a service of dedication we thank God for the child and the gift of life. The child would then be baptised upon making a personal confession of faith.
Call us if you are considering baptism or would like to arrange a christening for your child.
More detailed information about christening and baptism is available from the Church of England's christenings site.
