These informal sessions will familiarise parents with the Baptism service so that families can enjoy it more on the day, and also explains the commitment that parents and God-parents are undertaking to bring up their child as a Christian.

During the Baptism service, parents and God-parents accept the responsibility of training their child in the practice of the Christian faith. Parents and God-parents accept the duty to bring-up their child to keep God’s commandments of loving God and neighbour. Parents and God-parents publically reject evil and profess their faith to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
