Baptism

All parents who are considering having their child baptised are encouraged to come to our Luke@10 services on the 2nd Sunday of the Month. Which is a more informal service for all ages. We want your experience of church to be as good as it possibly can be.  

We believe that the church should be welcoming for all people and able to break down the barriers that have often been found in the past. Everyone is welcome at both St. Luke’s and St. Mark’s.

However, we are more than happy to arrange for a service on a day convenient to you and the God Parents.

Baptism, which is recognised throughout the world by all Christian churches, is the way in which a baby, with the help of parents or carers, becomes part of a local church. Baptism is an expression of commitment by parents and godparents to the Christian life. We find it helpful to express this as a shared journey.

Exploring baptism is a wonderful opportunity for parents to think again about what they believe, acknowledging of course that different people hold quite different views. It’s not uncommon, for example, for one parent to feel strongly about wanting their baby to be baptised while the other is far less sure.

 

We really value being able to explore this with you. Revd. Mike is only too delighted to chat informally.  Please email us at stlukesbaptisms@gmail.com
