Baptism in the Anglican Church is a ‘sacrament’ – a physical action taken to show that something spiritually important is happening. It is a central action in the Christian tradition that is traced back to Jesus being baptised in the River Jordan.
In baptism, we thank God for the divine gift of life and publicly acknowledge God’s love. In the Anglican Church it is common to baptise babies and young children (sometimes known as christening), but Anglicans also gladly baptise people of all ages who have not previously been baptised or ‘christened.’
It is usual for families or individuals to meet with the Parish Priest and others from the Parish for some form of preparation. This is so that everyone can have a good understanding of the commitments that baptism brings, and the blessings that God is offering both for the person to be baptised, and for the Church which receives a new member through baptism.

What does it cost?
Baptism is a gift of God. We do not charge anything. However, we do encourage you to give an offering in thanksgiving to God for the gift of your child.
