Baptism – sometimes called Christening – is the very start of your journey with God. A commitment and a desire to respond to the Word of God and to follow in the example of His son – Jesus.

It is a celebration – a moment to come together and remember that we are all loved by God – part of a worldwide community centred around God’s generous and inexhaustible love.

Baptisms are for adults and children, whether you’re 8 days old or 88 years old your Baptism is the beginning of a life-long journey of faith. Whenever you decide to come forward, we are here to pray for you, to support you and to encourage you on that journey.
