W 163 Infant Baptism in Common Worship (2001)

The new baptism service includes some significance changes from the ASB - in the vows, the use of symbolism and the length of the service - but there are also very significant points of continuity.

This guide sets the new service in the context of the theological argument for the baptism of infants, the history of the baptism service in the Church of England, and recent liturgical revision. It gives a clear explanation of the service itself as well as key aspects of pastoral implementation.
