Baptism conversation

Posted by Lucy Moore on 21 Jan 2012

Lesley (during end notices after a great fun Messy Church last week): Anyone like to consider christening, baptism for anyone in their family? Have a word with one of us!

Mum: Ooh, that sounds good. We could get the kids done.

Lucy: We could do it in Messy Church if you like, as that's the church you come to.

Mum: But would it be real?

Lucy: Yes! This is church just as much as church on Sunday!

Mum: Oh. That would be really nice. How much would it cost?

Lucy: It's free actually... and if you felt after the preparation that it would be the right thing, you could get baptised as well.

Mum: What? As adults?! (radiating incredulity)

Lucy: Um... yeah...
