Baptism Courses : For Children  /  For Youth / Adults


Baptism Course  For Youth / Adults
Baptism is one of the most significant milestones in a believer’s walk with God. It is a public declaration of our faith in Jesus Christ (cf. Acts 2:38) and is administered in obedience to the Lord’s instruction (Matt 28:19).

Confirmation Course
Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which you affirm for yourself the faith into which you have been baptised and your intention to live a life of committed discipleship. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands by the confirming Bishop. The Church also prays for you to be empowered by the Holy Spirit, to live in the way of Jesus.

The Cathedral Confirmation-Membership Course is for:

  • Those seeking confirmation / membership in St Andrew’s Cathedral.
  • Those baptised and currently attending church services regularly at St Andrew’s Cathedral for at least 6 months.

Note:  If you were baptised before 14 years old, you are required to attend the Baptism course before you join the Confirmation-membership course. This will cover the foundations of life as a Christian. After completion of the course, you will not be required to go through the rite of baptism again but may proceed straight to the Confirmation course.

All lessons, Baptism Service, Confirmation Retreat and Confirmation Service will be conducted onsite.
