Child Dedication

Waverley is committed to supporting families in our community in a meaningful way, encouraging healthy marriages and equipping parents to raise their children to love and serve Jesus.

Child dedication is not baptism. We believe that every person reaches a point in their life where they understand their sin, their need for forgiveness and respond to the message of the good news of Jesus.

Child dedication goes far beyond an event for your child, it is a commitment by you as parents and by the congregation, a promise to help one another in this vital task of raising children to be dedicated followers of Jesus. The child dedication celebration event is a time when we can all be together and commit ourselves to working together to see a strong family.

This is a critical stage of your life as a family and a chance to start this journey well by giving your child the most valuable inheritance, a legacy of a whole family following Christ and growing together.
