A baptismal service is always an occsion for great joy as we celebrate people’s public commitment to Christ, that outward sign of the new life He has brought. We are thrilled to be celebrating the baptism of four people on Saturday 12th November at 6.30 p.m. Please note that this service will be held at the old church building on Beever Street, Goldthorpe (since we do not yet have a baptismal tank at our new building!) Light refreshments will be served afterwards.

Romans 6 has much to say about baptism. It tells us that when we turn to Christ, we have ‘left the country where sin is sovereign’ (Rom 6:1, The Message). “When we went under the water, we left the old country of sin behind; when we came up out of the water, we entered into the new country of grace—a new life in a new land!” Paul goes on to say. It is truly wonderful to contemplate this new country of grace in which we find ourselves, thanks to Christ’s love and grace. Do come along and hear the testimonies of God’s saving power and be part of this great work that God is doing locally.
