Baptism

"I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord."
Hannah - 1 Samuel 1:27

Baptism is a big part of British life, it dates back to John the Baptist who baptised Jesus. Today it is one of the main ceremonies in the Church.

For many people this is the serious, slightly scary bit of being a godparent, but it doesn't need to be, baptism is very simple - it is a public declaration of following Jesus, either made by the individual, or for infants and children, made as promises on their behalf by parents and godparents. As a godparent it is a promise you make in front of God and the Church, so it is serious - but it need not be scary - it is simply a promise to help your godchild to build a relationship with Jesus.

This section explores the day of the Baptism, and what happens afterwards.
