Parents have a choice about holding a Christian-style baptism ceremony or more often in a Unitarian Chapel, a child dedication service for infants, or young children.
The parents may bring their child to the Chapel at a designated time during a regular Sunday worship service or choose a separate occasion for the ceremony. The dedication ceremony is generally a celebration of the blessing of new life, an expression of the parents’ hopes for their child, and a call to the parents and the congregation’s members to lead and nurture the child’s spiritual life as it grows.
Please contact the chapel for information on costs. The fees vary according to the celebrant, whether an organist is required, and use of the building following the ceremony, and sometimes, we just ask for donations. We are happy to advise.
