The birth of a baby is usually cause for great joy and thanksgiving.

Parents wishing to bring children for baptism are encouraged to do so.

Sometimes parents would prefer to have a service of thanksgiving or naming, leaving the more solemn promises made during baptism to the discretion of the child as he or she matures.

Older children or adults wishing to be baptised are also very welcome and suitable preparation and arrangements can be made.
