"When someone is baptised, that person is brought to Jesus Christ, and made a member of Christís Church. It is a new start to life in which the baptised person is accepted and sealed by God with the Holy Spirit to represent Christ to the world" (A New Zealand Prayer Book).

Baptism is a significant step in the life of a child. It is the beginning of the journey of faith toward the God who gives life; a journey whereby we grow in our relationship with a loving God.

While the majority of baptisms at All Saints are of infants and children, it is always a delight when an adult seeks to express their commitment to Christ in this way.

Baptism is more than a private family celebration. It marks the childís entry into the Christian Community, whose love and care will support parents in their responsibility for the Christian upbringing of their child. This is the reason baptisms are held during the Sunday Service at All Saints.

Baptisms are held every two months during the 9.30am Sunday Service.

If you are interested in baptism, please contact the church office and one of our clergy will be happy to talk with you!
