Baptism marks the beginning of a journey with God which continues for the rest of our lives, the first step in response to God’s love.

For all involved, particularly the candidates but also parents, godparents and sponsors, it is a joyful moment when we rejoice in what God has done for us in Christ, making serious promises and declaring the faith.

During the Baptism service you and the Godparents or Sponsors will be making some very serious promises and we want you to be sure that you are ready, not only to make these promises, but to try and keep them.

If you wish to apply for Baptism in the parish where you live or have a connection with that parish then please speak to your Priest or Minister who will arrange for you to attend a Baptism Preparation evening.

We would love to see you at your Church in the lead up to the Baptism.

Please contact your Priest or Minister for the times of services.

The Ministers of the Retford Area Team look forward to meeting you and your Godparents or Sponsors.
