|On Sunday the 21st November Phoebe Woodcraft is going to be baptised.It’ll be the first Baptism we’ve had at Church for some time, and something special to look forward to. Please pray for Phoebe, who is going to speak about how the Lord has been at work in her life to bring her to this significant point. And please pray for her Dad, Adam, who is preaching that day.Baptism is known as a ‘Dominical ordinance’ – something that Jesus, our Lord, has ‘ordained’ or commanded His followers to do. His last words recorded in Matthew 28:19 are:|
|‘Go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit …’ Matthew 28:19|
|We hear the Good news of who Jesus is and what He came to do in the preached word.|
And that same message is ‘spoken’ in the act of Baptism – it’s a sacrament – a picture of the new, eternal life that we have when we come to Jesus as Lord and ask for His forgiveness.
It’s a good opportunity to invite friends and family to Church. And please come and join our autumn Passion for life training series in the Parish Hall, on Tuesday evenings from 6.30 ( for a simple meal at 6.30 ) and discussion from 7pm – 8pm.
And with Christmas ahead, we have more to celebrate and sing about – please have a chat with Denise if you might be interested in joining the Choir this year? And with Jon who needs help on the tech team.
|Your brother in Christ, |
