Baptism and Thanksgiving
Both services include a naming component, each with different phases.
Baptism is for those parents who intend to bring their children up in the Christian faith and as part of that to participate regularly in the life of the Christian Church.
Baptism takes place in a Church Service and is celebrated by a minister in partnership with elders. Certain commitments are made in the Baptismal Service which cement these intentions.
Thanksgiving is for those who either don’t want to make these commitments to the Christian Church or those who want their children to be able to choose baptism later in life. Thanksgivings may take place outside the worship of the gathered church and can be celebrated by ministers and/or elders. A range of commitments can be made in the Thanksgiving service.
