Bedydd – Baptisms
I ddathlu ymroddiad cyhoeddus i Iesu Grist a’r Eglwys gan oedolyn neu rieni a rhieni bedydd ar ran plentyn.
The celebration of a public commitment to Jesus Christ and the Church made by an adult or by parents and godparents on behalf of a child.
In the parish of Holywell when it comes to the baptism of those not of an age to make the baptismal promises for themselves we make the effort to encourage parents to think carefully about the promises that they are invited to make on behalf of their child. This is because at baptism the Church comes to have an interest in the newly baptized person. The Church expects that baptism is the beginning of helping to make Jesus a role model in the life of the newly baptized. Our hope always is that the new Christian initiated into the Church and the Christian story at baptism will help to make the local Church stronger by their participation within it and their support for it. Despite the promise that parents and godparents make at baptism, that by their good example they will lead the newly baptized child in worship with the Church, this rarely happens and baptism has become a one off visit.
So we ask families who are sure that it is baptism that they are seeking and irrespective of what they decide to do after the baptism to attend a couple of Family Services and to meet the Church family before the baptism. This helps the Church to demonstrate that from its side it wants to take the relationship implied in baptism seriously and in the hope that the family might find something in the Church potentially valuable to their family life and worth coming back for following baptism.
Other parents will know that baptism for their child is not a priority for them preferring perhaps to allow their child to grow old enough to make the promises for themselves if they so choose or perhaps hesitant to approach the Church because they know instinctively that the promises shouldn’t be made lightly. That’s why in the parish of Holywell we also offer a Service of Thanksgiving for the Gift of a Child.
