Baptism is a sacrament where God is at work, an outward and visible sign of the inward and invisible action in which God engages, as the person being baptised makes promises in the way that they seek to live and are then
washed in the waters of baptism. This marks the beginning of a new relationship with God and the person who has been baptised.

Find out about the Christian Faith
Wanting to know more about the Christian Faith ? St Paul’s Cathedral regularly runs courses for older children and adult enquirers to learn more about the Christian Faith, leading to baptism and confirmation. We also prepare individual parents and godparents of infants for the baptism of their children.
