Baptism is the way in which the church receives people into the family of God to live life in a new way and with new meaning. It is also a celebration, a time to come together with family and friends; remembering that you are loved by God, are part of a wider community and have a place with God's people. At the time of baptism, the person is formally received as a member of the church, and may receive Holy Communion.
Baptism Services are often held on festival days (Easter, Pentecost, All Saints and The Naming of Jesus).
When a child or adult is baptised, a Godparent is chosen. This person is chosen for their interest and ability to nurture the Christian life and faith of the person whom they sponsor.
Baptism preparation for adults, children and infants can be arranged by booking an appointment with the Priest at the Parish Office. Baptism preparation usually consists of one to two visits for about an hour.
For more information about Anglican baptism, please see the Diocese of New Westminster Baptism Brochure.
We look forward to working with you to arrange your baptism.
