There are few things more fun in church than baptisms. We had two this morning. With the permission of the parents of the two newly baptised, I recorded that part of the service as I thought that folk might be interested in seeing how it is done here.

The baptism stands in place of the sermon, so I’ve put it on the church preaching page as well. The ministry of the Word this morning was a combination of Bible readings and baptism during the service and presentations after the service on the theme of water, in connection with the Wells for India project that we support and an initiative involving young people the eco-congregation project.

The camera was placed quite near the front of the faithful. There were about 200 people crowding round the font.

If you look very closely at the video, you can see me kissing babies. Is it any wonder I was drawn to politics?


  1. Unfortunately I did not get the camera level when I set it up for you. Hope the font at a slight angle does not detract too much from the viewing pleasure.

    As my first Anglican baptism,I thought it was lovely .I don’t know who chose the hymns and psalm but it seemed that a lot of thought had gone into preparing the service.
