BAPTISMS & FUNERALS

Baptisms

At Westbourne Park Uniting Church, we warmly welcome all who wish to be baptised, whether babies, children or adults. The baptism will take place during one of our regular worship services.

Baptism is about a person becoming a part of the family of God. This means establishing a connection with the rest of the family… the church. For a baptism at Westbourne Park UC, you will be expected to attend Sunday worship services from the time of your enquiry through to the date of the baptism (usually at least four weeks). This will allow you to get to know the people at Westbourne Park UC, and for us to get to know you. It will also give you time to decide whether Westbourne Park UC is the right place for you and/or your child to grow in faith through an ongoing connection. We’d love to have you stay and become a part of our church family, as so many have done before you.

Please contact the church office (8271 7066) to arrange a time to meet with our minister, so that you can discuss together the meaning of baptism and for you to have any questions answered.

KIDS HOPE

Kids Hope is a program that provides Churches with an opportunity to impact and serve their local community
through a partnership with a local Primary School.

Kids Hope builds caring relationships … one child, one hour, one church, one school.

Our church is privileged to be involved with Westbourne Park Primary School and we presently have 7 mentors who started this term.

This program provides our church with a wonderful opportunity to impact and serve our local community through a partnership with one of our local schools.

The school presently has more children who they would like to be involved with this program commencing in Term 4.

“…to engage with the community to help them see that the church is useful and that there are many who
attend who have skills that they can use.”

The leadership team of the school are very excited about this partnership.

This program continues to build on the relationships which have been formed over the years through the Christmas and Easter presentations and the support provided to the Christian Pastoral Support Workers through the various activities under the banner of the Inter Church Council.
