Baptisms & other services for children & new Christians.
Christians have a tradition of commemorating and celebrating major events in our lives. Baptism, also known as Christening, is a ritual of both celebrating the birth of a child and blessing and dedicating that child to God.
Baptism or christening is a traditional way to welcome a new child or to invite someone of any age to make a public commitment to becoming a Christian. It is an ancient practice, going back to the earliest days of the church, and involves (in the Scottish Episcopal Tradition) water being placed on the candidate’s head, usually at a font.
There are other rituals that are also possible: thanksgiving for a child, dedication of a child (to let them decide on baptism when they are older), confirmation (for people who have already been baptised) and other options.
