Baptism marks the beginning of our journey with God which continues for the rest of our lives. Baptism is a joyful moment when we rejoice in what God has done for us in Jesus Christ and we make serious promises as we declare our faith.
The service paints many vivid pictures of what happens on the Christian way. There is the sign of the cross, the badge of faith in the Christian journey, which reminds us of Christ’s death for us. The water of baptism is also a sign of new life, as we are born again by water and the Spirit. There is a lighted candle, a picture of the light of Christ conquering the darkness of evil. Everyone who is baptized walks in that light for the rest of their lives.
We would be delighted if you or your child would like to get baptised at St Anne's.
