Baptism is the gift of life in Jesus Christ and it can be received at any stage from birth to death and is sometimes called Christening. In Baptism we receive the promise of forgiveness of sins, incorporation in the body of Jesus and the gift of the Holy Spirit. For an adult who has not been baptised, this is a way to mark our desiring life with Jesus and our receiving everything He has promised. For an adult who has been baptised, but wishes to renew or rediscover the promises of baptism, we have a service of Renewal of the Baptismal Covenant which is a very special way of expressing and renewing that same desire. For an infant or young child, baptism is probably the most precious gift we can give a child after life itself, a life-long gift to grow into. If you want to know more about Baptism, please contact the church office on.
At the end of life, we can say our farewells in many ways, but doing it together with others in the presence of God offers a special gift to the family and friends. Arrangements can be made both in preparation before, and after the point of death. If you wish to know more, please contact the church office on +27 31 266 4325.
To join one’s life to that of another in a life-long commitment and love is the most amazing privilege and gift, and Jesus demonstrated by His own presence how God lends His blessing, and His very hands-on help, to the union of husband and wife. Our church building is a stunning venue and serving Anglican priests are licensed as Marriage Officers by the Department of Home Affairs for marriage services anywhere in South Africa.
