A dedication is a prayer of blessing over a child’s life and future. The bible tells us that Jesus invited the children to come to Him and He blessed them (Mark 10;13-16). We would normally do this as part of a regular sunday morning service. A blessing for the child and parents would be read aloud, followed by prayers for the whole family. It would then be normal for the family to invite close friends and family to continue their celebrations after the service.
When someone decides to “get right with God,” part of the “outward sign” of accepting Jesus as their savior is being baptised. It is an exciting time, but there are many questions regarding baptism that should be clarified. We believe in only baptising adults and we do this through full immersion in water.
Our pastors are able to marry a couple with official legal recognition if at least one of them is a member of the Apostolic Church. Ceremonies will always take place after agreement with the church pastors and after a series of wedding preparation workshops.
Normally funerals are arranged with and held by the local pastor by the local pastor. We work together with the churches and cemeteries in the local parish. Funerals take place either in the church building or in the cemetery chapel.
Through eating some bread and drinking some grape juice we take time to remember what Jesus did for us on the cross and we reflect on the impact of His resurrection in our lives. Communion is open for all that believe in Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.
