This Sunday we will be celebrating a baptism during Sunday worship – welcoming a child to Christ’s world-wide family and community, the Church. The service starts at 11:30am. Family and friends are very welcome – please ask one of the duty elders at the front door if you’d like help or advice finding somewhere to sit but feel free to sit anywhere – only the front couple of pews are reserved for the Sunday School children. Hymn books and orders of service are given out at the front door. Tea and coffee is served in the main hall after the service.
