Baptism

Baptism is the first Sacrament of Initiation.
In the waters of baptism we are initiated in the Church as children of God and commissioned to live as Christ's followers. Anointed by the Spirit, we are cleansed from sin and begin new life in Christ.
 

Baptism of Infants
Baptism usually takes place at 11.30am on Sundays. All enquiries regarding details, booking dates, information night and requirements can be made through Parish Office. All Baptism bookings can be made after the completion of the Baptism Booking Form which can be found in the rack in the church foyer. Completed forms need to be handed in to Parish Secretary prior to Information Night. All Baptisms need to be booked at least one month in advance. Attendance is required to a compulsory Baptism Information Evening which takes place usually on the second Thursday of each month at 7.30pm in the Parish Centre.
