The Parish Ministry Staff Team is delighted to welcome families who bring children for Holy Baptism, and adults who wish to be Baptised and Confirmed.
Baptisms are usually conducted on a Sunday at either 11.30 am or 12.30 pm, except during the period of Lent when no Baptisms take place.
Preparing for the Baptism
In order to go through what happens in our Baptism service, families are invited to attend our Petrus Community Church at 5 pm on the 2nd Sunday of each month in the Parish Hall. This is a relaxed style of service designed for families and includes a meal. Following Petrus you will be able to talk with our Parish Priest about the Baptism Service.
Godparents and sponsors are warmly invited and encouraged to attend Petrus with the parents. This is a great opportunity to not only go through the service, but to also get to know the staff here at Saint Peter’s and get to know the other families also bringing their children for baptism.
Our Children and Families Worker, Louise Hay, is available to talk with families if you are unable to attend Petrus.
You can book a Baptism for your child or for yourself by completing the form on this website, or you can phone the Parish Office on (02) 4934 5303 for further details to help you through the process of booking your Baptism.
You will be very welcome here, we look forward to hearing from you.
