In the Bible, when someone begins a new life in Jesus Christ, they have water poured or sprinkled on them as a sign of God's promise.

That washing is called Baptism. John the Baptist baptized people in the river Jordan. As the River Holme is normally quite cold, we tend to baptize people in church! God's promises are for us and for our children - so when a child is brought up in a Christian household, it is right that they are baptized, too.

If you are interested in Baptism for you or your child, contact the Revd Martin Short.
