On Sunday 19th August, two of our young people were baptised in the River Welland, Deeping St James.

The event was preceded by a short service at the Open Door Centre where Revd William Booker preached about baptism using a passage from Ezekiel 47. This was followed by testimonies from the two sisters who had decided together to be baptised.

After the service the congregation walked down to the riverside where we were joined by friends from Deepings Methodist Church. There we sang ‘Amazing Grace’ as the young disciples entered the river to be baptised in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit by William Booker and David Edden.

This uplifting event was followed by a friendly shared lunch back at the church building.
