Baptism is the primary sacrament of the Christian Church and at the Cathedral is celebrated when the church meets for worship. This may be at the regular Sunday Eucharist or during a monthly morning baptismal service according to your preference.

Baptism enables us to make a response to God's love, either through the faith of parents and godparents or personally as an adult believer. Through baptism we become members of Christ's Church, and are united to the resurrection life of Jesus Christ.

Baptism includes images and symbols that express our faith; people, water, font, oil and light. The Cathedral baptises both children and adults.

If you wish to be baptised or have a child you would like baptised, it is expected that you will participate in preparation which usually involves meeting with other baptismal families.

Those who are baptised are also invited to make a further profession of their baptism through confirmation at a later date.
