UPDATE: During the Coronavirus outbreak, St Luke’s will not be booking baptisms between April – June. Baptisms booked after June may be pencilled in but subject to change based on medical advice of the NSW government. Please contact us through the form below to find out more.
Should you require an emergency baptism for a child or adult who is ill, that can be arranged immediately.
Baptism is a mark of God’s all-embracing love. It’s a significant moment when one becomes a member of the Church, regardless of age. We at St. Luke’s want to welcome you into our community. When people say ‘yes’ to Baptism, they are saying ‘yes’ to God’s embracing love and God’s desire for us to belong to the community of God.
If you would like to have your child baptised at our beautiful church, or you would like to be baptised yourself, please make an appointment to meet with our rector, Reverend Canon Andrew Eaton.
Canon Andrew will guide you in exploring the meaning of Baptism and the commitment which it involves. If you then wish to proceed with Baptism, a date will be decided upon and preparations made.
Initial appointments can be requested by submitting a Baptism enquiry via the form on our CONTACT PAGE.
Baptism Times and Dates:
Baptism is a sacrament that involves the whole Christian community. Therefore it takes place at the church font and is usually celebrated during the 9.30am Sunday Eucharist. A private service can be arranged on select Sundays at 11:30am.
Your Baptism date and time will be confirmed after your initial appointment with Canon Andrew.
May you be blessed as you consider receiving the Sacrament of Holy Baptism.
