A Christian Community with Children at its Heart

Rob Howlett Baptist Minister visits Lympsham

As already noted in our previous news update, the children were disappointed that our visit to Burnham On Sea to visit the different faith Churches and the BARB and RNLI was cancelled due to the poor weather conditions. However we invited yet another visitor from one of the Churches today and this time it was Rob Howlett from the Baptist Church. Rob talked to the children about Baptism in the Baptist Church and how the special Baptising pool is under the floor. The children were fascinated to hear about how the Baptism involves wearing all your clothes and being immersed into the pool as part of the ceremony. Some of the children reflected about their own Christenings in discussions after the Collective Worship. Rob also played keyboard and we all sang "Give me oil in my lamp.." which resonated in the hall leaving us all feeling very uplifted. Thank you Rob for joining us today and we look forward to a return visit.
