Baby Sophie was, as they say, "as good as gold" and met everyone in church. Her Godparents and Parents took the vows on her behalf with great clarity and sincerity.
It is always a great moment in the life of a church when we have these baptismal services and our prayer is that this family will find with us, not just a welcome, but also their spiritual home.
This photograph includes not only Emma, our Parish Reader who assisted in the service, but also the Mothers' Union banner. The MU will continue to care for the babies who are baptised and send cards on their birthdays.
The windows in the baptistery depict the old man Simeon with the infant Jesus (on the left) and Jesus' welcome to the little children (on the right).
May the Lord bless you and keep you,
make his face to shine upon you,
and be gracious onto you.
May the Lord lift up the light of his countenance upon you
and give you peace.
