Baptism is a response to God's love - a desire and a commitment to respond to God's call to follow the example of Jesus Christ. Baptism is also the process by which infants, children or adults become members of the Body of Christ and are incorporated into the community of the Church. The sacrament which celebrates this process is called Holy Baptism.
Holy Baptism is a time of celebration, an opportunity to come together with family and friends; remembering that you are loved by God and are part of a wider Christian community.
Christians believe that the end of this life on earth is the beginning of a glorious new life in Christ. Anglican funerals try to balance the grief of the living with a celebration of the life of the deceased, and faith in the hope of the resurrection.
If your loved one is approaching death or has died, your local parish priest would be honoured to walk with you and support you in this difficult time
