​ Child Dedication

As a Baptist church, we do not baptise infants as we believe they need to make their own mind up as to their belief and faith when they are of an age when they understand what it is all about. However, we do dedicate children to the Lord and thank Him for the gift of a child. We also covenant to bring up our children under God's blessing in a Christian environment where they can thrive and come to a place of making their own mind up on spiritual things. This may or may not involve God-parents and others depending on the circumstances. We do not use water on the child's head but we do make formal promises before God and the church. If you would like to have your child dedicated, then please email

Sometimes, people start coming to church and/or come to faith when their children are no longer babies but are still not yet old enough to make up their own mind as to the Christian faith, and they would like to have all their children dedicated. In these circumstances we are more happy to dedicate older children as well.
