In the Scottish Episcopal Church it’s the common practice for the rite of baptism to take place within a service of the Eucharist (Holy Communion). Baptisms and thanks givings for the birth of a child are wonderful occasion.
At baptism, you begin your child’s journey of faith with them and promise to help them to discover God’s love. In baptism, your child then becomes a part of God’s family. Baptism is a very special and joyful occasion for you and for the church.
When you bring children to baptism, you and the godparents make statements of faith and promises on behalf of your child . It is important that you know what these statements and promises mean and think about them. If you want to have your child baptised, the Rector will be pleased to talk with you further.
