The purpose of a Christening is threefold:
1) To name the child
2) To dedicate the child to God, who is the Giver of Life
3) To pray for wisdom in parenting
It is therefore a dedication ceremony and not a baptism with water as some other churches would prescribe. We believe it is important for parents to recognize the fact that life belongs to God and that He takes a loving interest in the upbringing of children. The child should grow up with an understanding that God created them for a specific purpose and that the church is not to be their enemy but friend. By offering a Christening service we build a bridge with the family by exposing the child to his/her very first church service. As the child grows up, he/she has an awareness and identity with a local church and the Lord, who loves them and wants the best for them. Our christening services are brief but meaningful services (15-20min) and are held in the chapel. The cozy environment offers families the opportunity to invite relatives and friends to join and hear a very relevant and personalized message.
The age of the child varies but usually a baby under 1 year of age is ideal. We invite parents to book a date for a Sunday christening with our booking secretary. Parents need not be members of our church.
