Baptism/Child Dedication/Naming

Parents in discussion with the Minister have a choice about holding a Christian-style baptism ceremony or more often in a Unitarian Chapel, a child dedication service for infants, or young children.

The parents may bring their child to the Chapel at a designated time during a regular Sunday worship service or choose a separate occasion for the ceremony. The dedication ceremony is generally a celebration of the blessing of new life, an expression of the parents' hopes for their child, and a call to the parents and the congregation's members to lead and nurture the child's spiritual life as it grows.

If you would like to know more about having a Baptism/Child Dedication/Naming at our Unitarian Chapel, please contact our Worship Leader:
