5. When do baptisms take place?
Baptisms at St Peter’s usually take place during our 10am Sunday morning service (in non-Covid times). There are three reasons for this:
1. For anyone—child or adult— becoming part of God’s family is a public event.
2. So that the rest of the congregation can welcome those who are baptised, pray for them and support them.
3. So that the congregation remembers the promises God made to us, and we made to God, at our own baptisms.
During the Covid Pandemic we are arranging baptisms to be taken by Reverend Irena Edgecumbe with the assistance of our pastoral team on the first Sunday of the month after and separate from our Sunday worship.
