Baptismal Services - Sunday 3rd September 2017
Our next Baptismal service is on Sunday 3rd September
If you've never been baptised then we'd love to chat to you about what baptism is all about and how we can lead you towards being 'dunked'.
To get baptised on the 3rd September, you will need to attend a baptismal class. The class is an opportunity to gain an understanding of baptism, understand the process of the service and then record a short video 'testimony' or story to be played on the 3rd September to encourage our church community with your story of faith in Jesus. We give everyone being baptised a free T-shirt to wear on their baptism.
Our baptismal services are always an opportunity to invite friends or family to so we'd encourage you to do this.

If you're considering bringing your child for dedication here are a couple of thoughts to consider.
Parents bringing children for dedication are doing the following:
- Acknowledging that the child is a gift from God and are saying, 'thank you'
- Recognising that God has entrusted the child into their care
- Asking for God's help to build good physical, emotional and spiritual foundations into the child's life as they grow
- Following the example of Jesus' parents when they took him to the Temple for dedication
During the service the minster and members of the church community are:
- Offering their support to the parents as they bring up the child and are joining with them in praying that when he/she reaches the age of understanding they will come to a personal faith in Jesus Christ.
