Dedication and Thanksgiving

In a Baptist church we do not baptise babies ... we do, however, still want to give thanks for the birth of children and so we offer a Dedication or Thanksgiving service.

In a church service the parents give thanks for the child, make promises to love and care for them, and name them.  They may also, if they want to, make promises to bring the child ip in the Christian faith till they are old enough to make the decision to be a Christian for themselves.  See Baptism page.

If you want to know more please ask the minister or a member of the Leadership Team.

NOTE: The faith entry to Pilgrim school is based on regular church attendance for a minium of a year prior to application. (regular means at least once a month) and NOT baptism or Dedication.
