A Baptism Celebration – Dinks McCoubrie

Baptism Celebration

Baptism marks the beginning of a journey with God, which continues for the rest of our lives and is the first step in response to God’s love. For all involved, particularly the candidates and congregation, it is a joyful moment when we rejoice in what God has done for us in Christ, making serious promises and declaring the faith. The wider community of the local church and friends welcomed Dinks, promising support and prayer for her. Hearing and doing these things provides an opportunity to remember our own baptism and reflect on the progress made on that journey, which is now to be shared with Dinks as a member of the Church.

We celebrated with Dinks McCoubrie on her special day and listened how She had been welcomed into St Mary’s and re-embarked on her journey of faith with Jesus.

A Celebration Baptism

Baptism Celebration

Today we have started Lindsay on her Christian journey. God has touched her with his Love and given her a place among his people. God promises to be with her in joy and sorrow, to be her guide in life, and to bring her safely to heaven.

In baptism God invites us on a life-long journey. Together with all God’s people Lindsay will explore the way of Jesus and grow in her friendship with God, in the love for his people, and in serving others.

 

Baptisms at St Mary’s

St Marys Baptism

We celebrated four full immersion Baptisms today with both St Mary’s and the Nepalese Yahweh Church joining together for this special event. It was really great to see so many coming together in worship and to witness this important step in their Christian journey.


What exactly is Baptism?

Baptism is a response to God’s love – a desire and a commitment to respond to God’s call to follow the example of Jesus Christ. It is also a celebration, a time to come together with family and friends; remembering that you are loved by God, are part of a wider community and have a place with God’s people.
