See, here is water! What prevents me from being baptised?

17th December 2018

This is the first of two posts on baptism: its importance, history and development in the early centuries and to us today.

I’ve seen many baptisms … they are some of the most exciting moments in a church family’s life… let alone in the life of the individual being baptised. My baptism? The most important d[...]

14th December 2018
