Baptism is the first step on a journey of faith. Through baptism we become part of the community of the church. We will be delighted to discuss baptism with you if you live or worship in the Holyford Mission Community area. If you have strong personal links with this area, we will explore the possibility of baptism with you, in consultation with your local parish church.
We are delighted to welcome you to be married in one of our churches. The first step is to contact our administrator who will arrange an initial meeting with a member of the clergy. After this, you will be supported throughout the administrative process, which can seem daunting at first, but don’t worry, you will be in excellent hands throughout, and there is much guidance available that will assist you on your journey.
We are here to care for you and support you at this difficult time, and to help and guide you through the process along with your chosen funeral director. We will help and advise you in making choices about the service, to ensure that as far as possible the wishes of the person who has died and of you and your family are met.
Whenever it happens, whether as a baby, child or adult, baptism is at the heart of an amazing journey of faith as a follower of Jesus Christ. You are never too old to take this step, and being baptized as an adult is a wonderful experience. You may have been baptized at a christening when you were a child or in a different Christian tradition, and there are always special ways to renew the promises that were made then in a fresh way as you discover more about what it means to live them out in your life.
For those who have been baptised as babies, confirmation means taking personal responsibility for the vows that were made on the child’s behalf by parents and godparents. Many young people choose this step during their teens. For others, the time may not be right until much later in life. Adults who have not been baptised often choose to be baptised and confirmed in one service.
Vocation means what you are called by God to be and do. For some, this is a specific calling to ministry. For others, it could mean serving God through faithful discipleship in everyday life. Everyone has a vocation. Find yours.
