Baptism is a mark of membership of the church family, as well as of the body of Christ. Babies, children and adults are welcomed into the family by baptism usually as part of the All-Age Service on the first Sunday of every month. Those who wish to consider baptism for themselves or a child are encouraged to attend church regularly for at least 6 months, and will go through baptism preparation meetings at which the implications of the promises to be made will be discussed.
