BAPTISM CRITERIA

Your baby is welcome to baptised at St. Peter’s if you live within the parish boundary or you are a regular worshipper at our church.

We have the stipulation that parents and as many Godparents as possible attend the baptism preparation class where you will be most welcome. The class is held the week before the baptism service. If there is non-attendance, then the baptism will be postponed to a later date.

Please remember that parents do not have to have been baptised, but Godparents do.

There is a usual minimum requirement of three Godparents – two of the same sex as the child to be baptised and one of the opposite sex.

There is no charge for a baptism.­­­
