Holy Communion, Baptism, Confirmation, Marriage


Holy Communion

wine gobletis one of the sacraments (an outward sign that conveys an inward, spiritual grace through Christ) of the Christian Church, a practice that remembers a special meal that Jesus shared with his friends and followers. Through Holy Communion we celebrate the presence of Jesus with us, and his life, death and resurrection. In the words sometimes said during our Holy Communion Service, All those who love the Lord a little and would like to love him more are welcome. We hope that you will feel welcome in this special time Click here for more information.

Baptism

wateris another of the sacraments. It is the sign by which the Spirit of God joins people to Jesus Christ and incorporates them into his body, the Church. Baptism is a gift of God’s grace (God’s unmerited favour overwhelming generous freely given love) to the church – and as such, is a significant sign of God’s love for us all, irrespective of age. We often baptise babies as God’s grace is for us all, even when we don’t understand it. It is also open for children, teenagers and adults, if they have not already been baptised. Croydon Uniting Church would be delighted to have a conversation with you about baptism for your baby, your children or yourself.¬†Click here to download the Baptism Leaflet (PDF).

Confirmation

doveis a significant act in a person’s life of faith, as a public commitment to the purposes of God and an acknowledgment of reliance on God. It is an act of public acknowledgment and recognition of the promises made by ourselves or by others on our behalf at baptism. Confirmation follows Baptism for many this occurs many years after infant baptism, and for others baptism and confirmation will occur as part of the same act of worship and commitment.

Marriage

wedding ringsThe Christian celebration of marriage is an act of worship, an expression of the church’s offering of the whole of life to God. It is a pastoral occasion in which the community of faith shares in the joy of bridegroom and bride. It is an evangelical occasion in which those who have come to witness the marriage may be challenged by the implications of the Christian faith.

Further information about marriage in the Uniting Church is available by contacting our minister, Rev. Bronwyn Daniels.
