Family

People often contact the church in times of family needs such as marriage, baptisms, and funerals etc. Please see contact us page for appropriate documentation.

Marriage:

Firstly, it is not necessary to be a member of this or any other church - it is our pleasure to share in this special occasion with you! We encourage you to do a marriage course in preparation for your wedding .

In terms of process, please contact the minister to confirm his and venue availability, he will arrange an initial meeting to speak about your expectations and plans for the service. For more information please see our contact us

Baptism:

Baptism is one of the Methodist Church’s sacraments - a visible sign of something that occurs invisibly. We baptise people, not as a naming ceremony, but as a way to recognise and point out the presence of God at work. As Methodists, we believe that the presence and grace of God are clearly at work in the life of a young child and so we celebrate and acknowledge this even as we encourage the family to live in such a way that they also make the work and presence of God visible in their life at home.

Baptism is also the sign of entry into the church. It is this which makes us reluctant to baptise the children of parents who do not attend regularly, and also why we do not do private baptisms at parents’ homes or other venues. When we baptise we introduce the child to the Christian community, represented, in our case, by the Milnerton Methodist Church. For further information please see our contact us page for appropriate documentation and contact the minister..
