We are pleased that you are interested in Holy Baptism at the Church of the Transfiguration. You will find here an intimate, loving, and supportive family of Christians who will do all in their power to encourage you in your life in Christ.
From time to time people ask about the requirements for Baptism. The only requirements to begin planning for a Baptism at Transfiguration are:
A sincere desire to become a Christian or raise your child as a Christian.
A readiness to begin (or continue) active participation in the life of the "Little Church Around the Corner".
If you are sure about both of those requirements, wonderful! It will be a delight to have you with us. The first step to planning a baptism at Transfiguration is to phone the office (212-684-6770) and speak with the Rector of the church.
If, on the other hand, you are sure about the first requirement but not clear about the second, then we invite you to worship with us at the Church of the Transfiguration on a Sunday and meet us at the coffee hour immediately following the 11:00 service. Feel free to introduce yourself to the clergy, attend any of our adult education classes, or investigate our new series of Sunday Eucharistic liturgies at 11am geared more for the needs of children and young families: “shorter and brighter” and with a children’s address in place of the sermon. Featuring the Girls and Cherub Choirs. Do take the time to make sure Transfiguration is right for you.
May God bless you as you contemplate Holy Baptism for yourself or your child.
