WHO ARE WE

Gellerup Church is a folkekirke, which is located in a multicultural area in Aarhus Vest. The church has a desire to be a church that is rooted in the Christian faith and has a diaconal involvement in the world.

The church's location in a multicultural and multireligious region characterizes the congregation of the church, the composition in the churchroom and the work in and around the church.

Gellerup Church is an open and dialogue-seeking church.


The church's vision is to be a church:

That has Jesus Christ in the center
- Through service and care to point to God's unconditional love for the individual and invites to a community that has the Son of God, Jesus Christ, in the center.

That is carried by Community
- To provide space and expression for the individual and the congregations life and faith in worship and in open communities.

That is engaged in the world
- To be a meaningful and environmentally conscious city church that is committed to the world that we are a part of.

PRACTICAL INFORMATION

- What do I do if...

We become parents

Our child must have a name
A child must have a name no later than 6 months after birth.
It can happen in two ways:

either by Baptism:
Do you want the child to be baptized please contact the church office at the church where you want the baby baptized.
In addition to the child's name, please state the name and address of 2-5 godparents. Godparents must be baptized in the Christian baptism, but do not need to be members of the folkekirke.

or by Naming:
Should the child be named without baptism you must use your NemId to make a digital request via borger.dk. If you have joint custody, both parents must sign digitally.

Is it not possible for both parents to get NemId you can contact the church office who will guide you further.

Holy Communion begins with one of the following three introductionsa 
a The pastor says (facing the congregation):
Dear friends in Christ! Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself said: "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” In His holy supper our crucified and resurrected Saviour gives Himself to us, so that whoever hungers and thirsts for righteousness may find the food and drink of eternal life here. Come to Him in faithful obedience and receive His invitation when He says: “Take and eat; drink from it, all of you; do this in remembrance of me!” He will then unite himself to you, that you may always remember Him on your journey on this earth and one day be welcomed at His feast in heaven. With all our heart we pray:

This introduction may be omitted.

The pastor says (facing the altar):

On the night in which He was betrayed, Our Lord Jesus Christ took bread and gave thanks; broke it and gave it to His disciples, saying: Take and eat; this is my body, given for you. Do this in remembrance of me. 
Likewise, after supper, He took the cup, gave thanks, and gave it for all to drink, saying: This cup is the new covenant in my blood, shed for you for the forgiveness of sin. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.

The Body of Christ.
And then the chalice, saying:
The Blood of Christ.
Before each group of communicants leaves the altar, the pastor says (whilst making the sign of the cross with the chalice):
The crucified and risen Saviour,
Our Lord, Jesus Christ
who has now given you/us His holy body and blood
for your/our redemption
may He strengthen and uphold you/us
in true faith unto eternal life.

After each group of communicants except the last the pastor may prefer to say:

Order of Service for Baptism

Baptism usually takes place in church during a service, and usually at the point in the service where the Creed is said, i.e. in connection with the first biblical reading. Or it may take place after the hymn following the sermon or after communion. In case of illness the child may be baptized at home or in hospital.
When baptism takes place at a special baptismal service this service may begin with a prelude, an introductory hymn and a short sermon before the baptismal hymn.

BAPTISM IN CHURCH

BAPTISMAL HYMN
When baptism takes place during the service the baptismal hymn may be one of the hymns of the regular service. 
A common baptismal hymn is the following:

See, His arms are open wide
Tune: English 1834, C.E.F. Weyse 1838

See, His arms are o-pen wide, 
little ones find bless-ing!
Child-ren come to Je-sus’ side,
in His love pro-gress-ing.
Lord, bap-tize them now, we pray, 
let them grow to pon-der 
their new birth, so from Your way
they may nev-er wan-der!

Text: N.F.S. Grundtvig 1837
Trans: Edward Broadbridge 2009
DDS 447

After the baptismal hymn, the pastor may ask:
Is the child baptized at home? – No!
When adults are baptized, the pastor may ask:
Have you been baptized before? – No!

PRAISE AND PRAYER
Pastor:
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has born us anew to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. (1 Peter 1:3)
Let us pray: 
We thank You, Heavenly Father, 
that through Your only begotten Son, 
You have given this Holy Baptism
in which You make us your children
and give us the Holy Spirit 
with the forgiveness of sins and eternal life. 
We beseech You graciously 
to receive this child (these children) whom we bring before You: 
Make him/her(them) a member (members) of Your church 
and keep him/her (them) in communion with You now and forever.
Amen.

When adults are baptized:
We beseech You graciously to receive this man/woman
who comes to be baptized.
Make him/her a member of Your church
and keep him/her in communion with You now and forever.
Amen.

READINGS
All stand for the readings and the pastor continues: 
Our Lord Jesus Christ says: All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: Teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you: and behold, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world (Matthew 28:18-20).

And in the gospel according to Mark we read:
And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me, do not hinder them, for to such belongs the Kingdom of God. Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” And He took them in His arms, put His hands upon them and blessed them (Mark 10:13-15).

Let us therefore help this child (these children) 
to receive God’s blessing 
by baptizing him/her (them) 
in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

When adults are baptized:
Let us therefore help you to receive His blessing
by baptizing you 
in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

SIGN OF THE CROSS
If there is more than one child, each child is carried to the font individually. 
When adults are baptized, each baptismal candidate steps forward to the font.
The pastor makes the sign of the cross above the face and chest of the baptismal candidate and says: 
Receive the sign of the Holy Cross upon your brow and upon your chest, as a testimony that you shall belong to the crucified Lord Jesus Christ.

What is the name of the child? 
The responsible adult says the child’s full name
When adults are baptized this question is usually left out.

THE CREED
(Child’s name) Do you renounce the devil and all his works and all his ways? – I do! 
Do you believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth? – I do! 
Do you believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. On the third day He rose again. He ascended into heaven. He is seated at the right hand of the Father, and He will come to judge the living and the dead? – I do! 
Do you believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting? – I do! 
Will you be baptized in this faith? – I will!

BAPTISM
The pastor pours water three times over the head of the baptismal candidate and says: 
(The child’s name) I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

The pastor places a hand on the head of the baptized child/person and says: 
The Almighty God, the father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 
has now granted you rebirth by water and the Holy Spirit
and has bestowed upon you the remission of sins,
May His grace strengthen you unto eternal life.
He shall preserve your going out and your coming in
from this time forth and forever more. Amen.

If more children are to be baptized, the pastor repeats the ritual from the sign of the cross.

THE LORD’S PRAYER 
During the Lord’s Prayer the pastor places a hand on the head of the baptized child/ children.
Let us pray: 
(traditional)
Our Father, who art in heaven, 
hallowed be Thy name, 
Thy kingdom come, 
Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses, 
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Or 

(contemporary)
Our Father in heaven, 
hallowed be Your name,
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread,
Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those 
who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are Yours,
now and forever. Amen

Pastor: Peace be with you. Amen. 
INSTRUCTION OF GODPARENTS
All sit, except parents and godparents while the pastor instructs them in their duties:
You, the godparents of this child (these children), bear witness to the fact that he/she (they) has (have) been baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. If the parents die before the child comes of age, it is the duty of the godparents, as far as you are able, to ensure that he/she (they) learns (learn) about the basics of Christianity in order that he/she (they) may remain in Christ, even as he/she (they) now through baptism has (have) been grafted into Him. 
Peace be with you.

Or

You, the parents and godparents of this child (these children), have now witnessed how he/she (they) was (were) baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. It is your duty as parents to bring up your child in the Christian faith and to pray for him/her (them) in order that he/she (they) may remain in Christ, even as he/she (they) through baptism has (have) now been grafted into Him. If the parents die before the child comes of age, it is the duty of the godparents, as far as they are able, to ensure that the child learns about the Christian faith.
Peace be with you.

This instruction may be freely formulated or one of instructions given above may be used as a guideline. 
When adults are baptized, the pastor usually ends with a few words freely composed and addressed to the godparents/sponsors.

BAPTISMAL HYMN
After baptism follows a hymn. When baptism takes place within a regular service, the service continues as usual and the hymn may be one of the hymns of the regular service.

(BAPTISMAL PRAYER)
 At services without communion and at special baptismal services the following baptismal prayer may be used as a concluding prayer.

Lord, our God, heavenly Father,
We thank You with all our heart 
that You have let us be mercifully baptized
and thereby bestowed upon us the forgiveness of sins,
the Holy Spirit and eternal life
for the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ.
Keep us faithful and let us never doubt this precious gift of Yours.
and by the strength of Your Holy Spirit 
let us fight against sin and thus rest in the mercy of our baptism
until we come to share eternal bliss
through Your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord
who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one true God forever and ever. 
All: Amen.

When baptism takes place at a special baptismal service, this service is concluded with the Benediction, a concluding hymn and an organ postlude.
