We love children at Southlakes Anglican and we love to welcome new children into the family of God through baptism.
However, not many families understand what baptism means. If you are considering having your child baptised with us, please download and read the following information. This will assist you to understand the two different types of services we offer.
The birth of some children is carefully planned; others come as a surprise. But it is always a wonderful privilege - and a great responsibility - to care for a young child. So it's very natural to want to give thanks to God for one of the greatest gifts he has ever given you, and to ask for his blessing on your child and your family.
Two Options: Things have changed a little in the church since we were children ourselves. Parents now have two options. You can choose a thanksgiving service or a baptism service. Both services occur during the Sunday service and take around 15 minutes.
