Easter Baptisms & Confirmations at Christ Church
Easter morning is always a reason to celebrate, but this year perhaps more than others. We were overjoyed to be welcoming six candidates for baptism and five for confirmation.
The service was presided over by Bishop Saju, the bishop of Loughborough. The candidates included two generations of one family and three generations of another.
Easter has always been a traditional day for baptisms to take place within the Church.
Some of the candidates spoke of how they came to faith and the difference that knowing God in their lives has made. They spoke of how their faith has strengthened them when they have been through, and continue to go through, times of difficulties.
May we congratulate all of our candidates and encourage you to “fight valiantly as a disciple of Christ against sin, the world and the devil and remain faithful to Christ to the end of your life.”
