Baptism is a very special moment on the journey of faith. It is a moment when God's presence and blessing meet us in a special way, and it is a moment when we make our personal commitment of faith in Jesus as Lord.
The vast majority of Christian churches practise baptism, but many baptise or christen babies and children who are too young to make their own responses and so parents make promises on their behalf. At Pavilion we baptise young people and adults who are able to make their own response. Normally baptism takes place by full immersion in water as part of one of our regular services. Baptism is a great time of celebration for the people being baptised and for the whole church.
Take a look at the photos and if you feel God is calling you to be baptised get in touch
with our minister.
At Pavilion we believe that baptism in this way is God's best for all Christians, but we welcome and affirm those who have a different story to tell of how they have been baptised and come to faith. Christians of all traditions are therefore welcome to be members of Pavilion and play a full part in the life of the church.
