Baptism is a symbolic action that signifies the new life God gives us as we join the church community. Baptism uses water as a symbolic cleansing that signifies the acceptance of new life within the church family. The sacrament of baptism is the single rite of initiation into the Christian community, the church.
Baptism in the United Church is recognized by all denominations of the Christian church that practise infant baptism. Similarly, if someone has already been baptised in another church at any age, the United Church recognizes their baptism and welcomes them as Christians. If you are seeking baptism for yourself or your child, contact our minister the Rev Lynn Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org or 519 829 9024
Your baby’s or child’s blessing ceremony can be a big occasion with extended family, friends and community. Or it can be an intimate moment, with just parents and child. Whatever you choose, it’s a time to focus on honouring your child’s life, the family and community that support you raising the child, and promising to do your best to help your child be their best.
