Baptisms and Thanksgiving Services

          You and your Child are WELCOME

 

We're encouraged that you are thinking of beginning a relationship with the church either personally or for your child.

 

Whether we are talking Thanksgiving or Baptism, we want to help you make an informed choice.

Every child has a Thanksgiving Service first because you do not have to be a Christian to thank God for your child.

The Thanksgiving Service is similar in form to a Baptism in that there are prayers, giving of gifts and a welcome to church.

There is no water and you are not asked to make promises.

You can also choose godparents, those who are close to your family and to whom you'd trust your children.

Godparents at a Thanksgiving Service do not have to be baptised.

Later you may wish to consider baptism and therefore what it means to be a Christian.

Our baptism procedure looks like this:
