To bring your child to the
Church for baptism is a
public sign of your own
faith and trust in God's
love. The ceremony of
baptism speaks powerfully
about this love and as you
follow the service by joining
in the prayers and responses
you are drawn deeper into
God's love. The Ceremony
begins with a welcome
to your child and your family
and the Church asks you are
you willing to accept the
responsibility of bringing up
your child in the practice
of the faith. Water is the
symbol of life, it makes us
clean. Baptism signifies the
new life and the cleansing
from sin.You are asked
to renew the vows of your
own baptism, then the priest
baptises your child.Your child
is now a Christian, a member
of Christ's body. The child is
wrapped in a white garment
to signify they are now a new
creation clothed in Christ. You
hold a lighted candle, keep it
burning for your child and bring
them up in the ways of faith.
