Baptisms

West Sheppey Baptism Policy

 

 


May God, who has received you by baptism into his Church,
pour upon you the riches of his grace,
that within the company of Christ's pilgrim people
you may daily be renewed by his anointing Spirit,
and come to the inheritance of the saints in glory
Baptism is something Jesus asks us to do. 
It is about 
church, about belief, about belonging.
Therefore it is very important:- and needs to be thought about carefully.
In these 
parishes we welcome all who seek baptism, and we ask just two things:-
•    That they begin to attend the church in which the baptism is to be held (so they can meet the people who will be welcoming them and helping them to know Jesus)
•    That they attend a four-week evening class (which explains the promises that they will make to God in front of the whole church) 
Please note that baptisms happen during the main church service.
Because we are delighted to welcome so many baptisms, it can be up to a 
six month wait for your baptism service. 
However that does give time for you to really get to know the people and church!
The baptism classes are held three times a year (dependent on numbers)

The next baptism classes will start on the 9th of February 2017 and run for 4 weeks

(9th, 16th, 23rd Feb and 2nd March).  You have to register before you can attend these classes, please contact the church office on 01795 871500 for further information.
