Baptism

In Baptism, God calls us out of darkness
into his marvellous light.


The birth of a baby is a special event for the family, and is celebrated in many different ways.  Baptism is often an important part of these celebrations.

We believe that each person is unique and is loved by God. 
At Baptism we are welcomed into the family of God and we set off on "the journey of a lifetime."  We are supported in this commitment by our fellow Christians, all of whom are at different stages of their own journey. 

Although the majority of those
baptised at St Lawrence's are babies, there is no upper age limit.  It is quite usual for toddlers, children, young people and adults to be baptised.

Baptisms take place on Sundays, either within the 10.00am Parish Eucharist Service, or at 11.45am in a separate Service. In the latter case, the newly baptised and family return to be formally "welcomed" at the 10.00am Parish Eucharist Service on another Sunday. 

If you worship regularly at St Lawrence, or live in the parish of Eastcote, we shall be happy to discuss arrangements for Baptism.  Please contact the Parish Office between 9am and 12noon on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday.
