Baptism

Website closing soon

As you may be aware, there has been a re-structuring of church parishes recently. As a result this website will soon be closing - don't worry, the churches won't be!

From now on, please visit the Capel & Ockley website for St. Margaret's news, and the Ewhurst with Okewood & Forest Green website for news of St. John's and Holy Trinity.

In baptism, we thank God for his gift of life and publicly acknowledge his love. In the Anglican Church it is common to baptise young children; this is sometimes known, outside the church, as christening.

Baptism is a 'sacrament' (holy ritual to symbolise grace) in the Christian tradition that is traced back to Jesus himself being baptized in the river Jordan.
