On Sunday 5th July, little Isla-Rose Pearl Roberts was baptised at St John’s Church in the Parish of Badshot Lea and Hale by the Reverend Lesley Crawley. Isla-Rose was there with her were mum and dad – Nikki and David – and her big sister Lauren as well as all the rest of her family and friends.
Lesley commented, “We love baptising children in the the three churches of the Parish of Badshot Lea and Hale. They are baptised during the normal Sunday Services so that the regular congregation can officially welcome the newest members of the church. We aim to be congregations who provide a spiritual family for all those who are baptised.”
Nikki said, “Isla-Rose Pearl’s baptism was so wonderful, the service was absolutely beautiful and I was filled with joy when she was welcomed into the church. It means a lot for my children to be baptised because although a busy work and home life restricts me from attending church as much as I would like, I often think of God and pray for all of my family and friends.”
