Baptism and Dedication
Some parents wish their child to be baptised (christened) soon after birth by a threefold pouring of water over the child’s head.
Other parents prefer to give thanks for the gift of a child with a service of dedication and then wait until the child grows up enough to make their own decision. The right age for this depends on the individual child.
Baptism can take place at any age thereafter, whenever someone has chosen to follow Jesus. There is no upper age limit! In our church’s understanding it can happen only once.
Both baptism and dedication take place in our main service, so we can give a proper welcome.
