View Full Version : Christenings - Northside
Does anyone know of a nice Christen (maybe Anglican) church on the North side where I can have bub christened? I am not a regular attendee and have no real convictions to go regularly either so it will need to be a pretty relaxed religion.
Any ideas? :p

I am getting my little boy Jake christened at All Saints Anglican Church. Its on Hamilton Road in Chermside. Father craig is absoltely lovely. I am not overly religious either, all he asks is that you attend church a few times before the christening, i think i only went four or five.
Good luck with it
We had our son christened by Father Rex who does Bribie Island Caboolture and Burpengary areas. He is catholic BUT is so open to anything and everything and welcomes ALL !!!!!!! No strict rules or must attends. It was a simple one night information evening and then book in the date and along we went. All we had to provide was a candle. You can get hold of him at Caboolture Catholic Parish.
Thankyou both for your replies. I honestly thought Catholicism would require you to be a full time catholic, I am impressed. I will check these options out.
Without wanting to get into a big religious debate, can I ask why you want to get your baby christened? I'm just wondering what meaning it holds for you.
I know a lot of non-religious folks hold a 'naming ceremony', sometimes performed by a Justice of the Peace. I think the Bubhub website had some info on this.
We attend Christian City Church - Bridgeman Downs (in Carseldine, opposite Bunnings). We don't do baby baptisms or christenings, as that's a decision for the child to make on their own, in their own time (we think, anyway). But we do hold baby dedications during a Sunday service which all family and friends are welcome to attend, which basically prays for the child; strength, guidance and wisdom for the parents; and a committment from the church family to accept the child into the group and support & nurture them.
Leanda I was going to ask the same thing. ;) I would like to understand what people who aren't Christians believe about infant baptism.
At our church in The Gap, we do dedications for babies as well - like a promise to bring them up to know God and baptism is done when you are old enough to turn from sin and understand what you are doing.
Even though I think that there is so much more than just the Christening day and we need to accountable to God in everything that we do, I think that any and every oppurtunity for non Christians to go to church and experience God should be welcomed and encouraged. I hope you find a great church that will do this for you. :)
I grew up in a very VERY strict religious home.
I still have my close ties to god but now as an adult I have decided to just have my faith in my heart.
I want my daughter to have a kind loving faith with fond memories of religion and not the awful punishing 7 days a week bible bashing :eek: I received as a child.
I do not wish to attend myself but I still would like her to have this connection.
Thanks for your concerns
