Baptisms

Baptism

Baptism is the outward visible sign, (in the use of water), of an inward spiritual act of God. It is the visible sign of presenting the Christian Good News, that God sent Jesus Christ, God’s only Son to be our Saviour and our friend. This Good News declares God’s grace and acceptance of us in God’s kingdom of love. It also recognises your child’s inclusion into Christ’s Church. It reminds us that God sent Jesus to die for us and to bring us new life.

The Albert Street Uniting Church regularly conducts baptismal services during the 11:00am Sunday Service.  We also hold baptisms during our 9am or 6:30pm services on request. To arrange a baptism please call us on 07 3031 3030 or fill in the form below with the details and we will contact you to confirm the arrangements.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do we have to have Godparents?

You may decide to have Godparents or Sponsors. This is not something you must do, but some people prefer to choose Godparents, who are significant adults involved in the spiritual development of your children.

Where can we park?

Please note that free parking around Albert Street Uniting Church is very limited and usually a long walk. We encourage people to advise their guests to allow time to find parking. King George Square Car Park is the closest to us and has inexpensive weekend rates.

Do we have to pay for the baptism?

No, baptism is a free gift of God’s love and therefore is a free gift from the Church. There will be an offering taken during the service and the proceeds of this offering go to support the ongoing work and ministry of this congregation.  Your donation is a great way of supporting this continuing work.
