Baptisms

 

 

Baptism 

When someone is baptised, that person is brought to Jesus Christ, and made a member of Christ’s Church. It is a new start to life in which the baptised person is accepted and sealed by God with the Holy Spirit to represent Christ to the world. As a response to the baptism which God gives us, we and the candidates declare our faith and intention to serve Christ, and ask for God’s continuing grace to support us in the task to which we are called. When a baptism is of a baby or a child, the baptised receives the love and shared faith of the family to grow up into Christ.

 

Baptisms are part of the ministry of all four churches.   Please contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (04) 233 9781.

 

Note: Before contacting for a baptism, you are asked to worship with us first. This is because baptism involves a commitment to God, the church, and sharing the life of a particular congregation - and because we want to support you as much as possible.

 

There is always water in the fonts in our churches to remind us that we are a community of the baptised. Please use this water to remind you of your own baptism … and say a prayer for the community.

Arrangements are not settled until there has been a conversation with one of the priests and the date is formally booked through the Office.
