We’re so pleased you are seeking Baptism for yourself or your child! At St Clement’s we understand Baptism to be a significant Christian commitment. Baptism is your promise, supported by your family, friends and the entire congregation, based on your faith and membership in the church, to raise your child to be a faithful follower of Jesus Christ or to be a faithful follower yourself. It is introducing your child to God’s love and care from the very beginning of his or her life. Choosing to have your child baptized comes from the wonderful parental instinct to want the best for your child. We’re committed to helping you prepare for Baptism so that it’s a meaningful experience and the beginning of a life-long relationship with Jesus Christ.

Steps Toward Baptism

Like any journey of great significance, the road to Baptism takes time.

◦ Find a rhythm of worship – Joining our wider community for weekly worship will give you a clearer sense of whether you’d like to be a part of our church family, as well as strengthen and encourage your own faith, and help equip you to teach your child about following Jesus. Our experience is that worshipping with us regularly for 3 months helps form a solid basis for the promises you will make at Baptism. Click here to see which of our worship services might work best for your family’s rhythm.
