A Child's Guide to Baptism
As baptism is a significant milestone, it is important that children and their parents understand the liturgy, symbolism and structure of the Baptism service. Australian Church Resources has published an Australian edition of this resource for children's baptism.
My Baptism Book is designed to assist adults in helping children discover more about baptism, and to support and love them into a relationship with God, which is personal and lifelong. It is not about religious instruction, or religious education, but Christian formation.
