Baptism (T)



The two boys were baptised today, at the Church of the Ascension. The vicar, Stephen Hance, takes a literal and enthusiastic approach to the ceremony, so the boys were more bathed than dabbed. We have been attending this church for 8 years, and although our plans this year are not to be in London much, it was proper that this be the place our boys be welcomed into God's family.

Congratulations guys,
It is always great to hear when Christian people have their children baptised. There is something very real about using a symbol to show their involvement in God's people, to show that they are a part of God's people.
A nice change from my seemingly constant conversations with people looking for "christenings" for their kids after they got married in the church here.

Hope you guys are well.
The photos look great
Simon.
