Sharing life’s sacred moments
It is our privilege to offer support and celebration for life’s milestones, including baptism and marriage, and comfort in the loss of a loved one.
One of the primary sacraments of the Christian faith
As baptism marks our membership into the Body of Christ, it is a sacrament celebrated when the other members are present, usually on Sunday mornings.
At Christ Church, infant baptisms are held on the traditional days for baptism in the liturgical calendar (Feast of the Baptism of our Lord, Easter Eve, The Day of Pentecost, All Saints’ Sunday) as well as other Sundays. At each service we limit the number of babies being baptized, with the exception of a dedicated baptism service on Easter Saturday. We do not offer private baptisms.
An instruction class for parents and godparents is held on Saturday at 10 am the day before Sunday baptisms.
If you are expecting or recently welcomed a new baby, we’d love to know about it! Please use this form to update your family information.
We also offer baptisms for adults and older children during Sunday worship. Adults and children being baptized will meet with one of the clergy before the baptism for instruction.

Holy Baptism is the sacrament by which God adopts us as his children and makes us members of Christ’s Body, the Church, and inheritors of the kingdom of God.

Marriage is a solemn and joyous sacramental rite that the Church is privileged to oversee for its members.
