Baptism joy for Reza, Caleb and Nicola

11 November 2013

Surrounded and supported by friends and family last Sunday’s morning service saw three people declare a personal faith in a very public place.

Before their baptisms, the three candidates: Reza Safarpoor, Caleb Dodd and Nicola Smith each took time to tell a packed church a little about themselves and about how they felt that God had led them to this particular point in time.

As the climax to a service that took Acts chapter 10, verses 1 – 48 as its text (a piece of scripture that underlines how in God’s sight there are no favourites) the baptisms not only gave three very different people the opportunity to profess their faith but also – wrapped up in the euphoria of the occasion – the chance to remind the whole church that as “works in progress” they and indeed the rest of us still have a long way to travel.
