Baptism and Confirmation
Baptism and confirmation
What is baptism?

In baptism, we thank God for his gift of life and publicly acknowledge his love. In the Anglican Church, it is common to baptise young children; this is sometimes known as christening. Baptism by full immersion in water is commonly used for adult baptism.

Baptism is a ‘sacrament’ (holy ritual symbolising grace) in the Christian tradition that is traced back to Jesus himself being baptised in the river Jordan.

What is Confirmation?

Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which you affirm for yourself the faith into which you have been baptised and your intention to live a life of committed discipleship.

This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands by the confirming Bishop. The church also asks God to give you power through the Holy Spirit to enable you to live in the way of Jesus.

Thinking about baptism or confirmation?

For more information on getting your child baptised, thinking about renewing your baptismal vows or wish to discuss confirmation, please contact us and we can help.
