NEW BEGINNINGS: starting journeys of faith.

Giles, our Vicar, in his Devotional talks about Baptism being at the heart of the Christian journey. It is the beginning of a journey with God which continues for the rest of our lives ,the first step in response to God’s love. Starting the journey can begin at any time of our lives. The Baptisms held at St John’s since reopening prove this.

The first came in October at the confirmation service when our very own Emma Callaghan , who is in her twenties,  was baptized and confirmed.

Later  Pearl (14)  and Leroy (13) Bennett Budnikova   were christened along with one year old Aiden.

Aiden’ baptism was one of firsts. Not only was it his first birthday but  also this was the first time  our curate Georgia Ashwell  had carried out a baptism.

Finally Audrey Brett Taylor  who was just six months old was christened .

Giles was ably helped by Audrey’s young friends.
