Baptism is the outward visible sign (in the use of water), of an inward spiritual act of God. it is the visible sign of presenting the Christian Good News, that God sent Jesus Christ, God's only Son to be our Saviour and our friend. 

This Good News declares God's grace and acceptance of us in God's kingdom of love. It also recognises your child's inclusion into Christ's Church. It reminds us that God sent Jesus to die for us and to bring us new life.

We regularly conduct baptisms during our 9am Sunday worship service. All families are required to attend a Baptism Class one Saturday morning, usually held on the first Saturday of every month, between 10am and 12pm. After attending the Baptism Class, the date of baptism is arranged with our ministers. To book into a Baptism Class, please call us on 07 3071 3060 or contact us.

The purpose of the Baptism Class is to meet our ministers, have a chat about the purpose of baptism, discuss the details of what happens during the service, and to fill in the paperwork. Even if you have had a child baptised with us before, you will still need to attend a session for the next child.

Frequently asked questions

You may decide to have Godparents or Sponsors. This is not something you must do, but some people prefer to choose Godparents, who are significant adults involved in the spiritual development of your children.
Please note that free parking around Albert Street Uniting Church is very limited and usually a long walk. We encourage people to advise their guests to allow time to find parking. King George Square Car Park is the closest to us and has inexpensive weekend rates.

No, baptism is a free gift of God’s love and therefore is a free gift from the Church. There will be an offering taken during the service and the proceeds of this offering go to support the ongoing work and ministry of this congregation.  Your donation is a great way of supporting this continuing work.

We really want this to be a special time for the baptised, their family and the people of this congregation. If you have any further questions please contact us on 07 3071 3060.

God bless you as you prepare for this very special event.
