Baptism is a simple ceremony of washing in water, practised by Christians since the time of Jesus.
Some may decide to publicly acknowledge their faith. In the church we do this formally through Baptism.
Parents are welcome to bring their infants to Baptism (sometimes called Christening) and encourage and support them until they are old enough to make their own response.
