We at St John’s would like you to know that we will do all we can in supporting your decision to have your child baptised.
Baptism is the start of the Christian journey, of itself it doesn’t make you a Christian but it opens the door to the life God wants us to lead.
As Christians we believe that baptism is one of two principle sacraments, the other being Holy Communion. So what is a sacrament? It is a visible sign of God’s love for us as human beings. At baptism we are thanking God for the gift of life and acknowledging his love. We are turning away from evil, sin and darkness and turning positively to Christ.
Baptism is free.
Baptisms at St John’s are conducted at the following times:
1st Sunday of the month 10.00am in the Family Eucharist
(This helps families to join with the congregation to celebrate the birth of their child and start of their child’s Christian journey. It is also helpful for those not used to church to engage in a more relaxed service)
Other Sundays at 12.30pm or by arrangement
(A quieter service for family and friends)
