Dedication of Infants and Children

At Leigh Road Baptist Church (LRBC) we give the opportunity to mark the birth of a child in a service of worship, and we believe that this provides an ideal opportunity to give thanks for this new life and to commit as parent/parents to bringing up this child to the best of your ability and in the teaching the Christian faith. The act of dedication also gives the local church an opportunity to offer their support and prayer for you.

Our family and friends who were at the dedication were very touched at how welcome they were made to feel by you and the congregation; they all expressed how they felt at home.

What the Bible Teaches about Dedication

The service gives the opportunity to give thanks to God and to dedicate your child. In the bible Jesus welcomed children and blessed them, and this has been an example Baptists over many years have followed.
