Baptism

Baptism

Baptism, also called Christening

Today is the beginning of the rest of your life!

Your Baptism (or Christening) is the beginning of your everlasting life - if you want it to be.

We at St Peter's would count it our privilege to be witnesses of this most important step in the life of your child, or of yourself.

We would be pleased to welcome you into our family.  To find out more just contact us in any way you choose:  email, telephone, letter or just visit us on any Sunday.

Then we will make a time to meet and talk about what Baptism means to us, and what it can mean to you. You are never too young or too old to accept Baptism.

There are many good reasons for asking for Baptism. You can share your reasons when we meet. We offer Baptism, because Jesus told us to do it. That is the best reason.

Baptism is more than just giving someone their name. It is the beginning of everlasting life, as a child of God, and an inheritor of the Kingdom of Heaven.
