What is Baptism? Baptism, or being Christened, is when someone becomes a member of the Christian church. When children are baptised, parents are thanking God for the gift of life and deciding to start their child on a journey of faith. In baptism, we use water as a powerful symbol to indicate the person is making a new beginning as a member of Christ’s Church.
Godparents promise help and support and the church community welcomes the child and promises to pray for the family. For your child, being baptised marks the start of a lifelong journey of faith as part of the local and worldwide Christian family.
