The Sacrament of Holy Baptism is a ritual act of initiation into the church community. It is conducted as part of our Sunday celebration of Holy Communion.
Baptism is about identity and belonging – it is a commitment that will shape how we intend to live our lives. It is common in Anglican churches to bring infants and children for baptism. Adults, teens and older children may also seek baptism for themselves. Preparation for baptism includes a session with the Priest to look at the symbols of baptism, review the promises made in baptism and discuss the details of the service.
If you have been baptized in any other Christian denomination, your baptism is fully valid in the Anglican Church. If you wish to reaffirm your promises or celebrate your inclusion in the Anglican community, you can speak to one of the clergy about ways to do this, but it is not a requirement.
