Breaking the ice

On one of the coldest Sundays mornings for a long time, we filled our baptism pool with 1000 gallons of water straight from the fire hose at Reading Girls.
Mike Dix, who became a Christian 4 weeks ago after the men's breakfast, stepped resolutely into the cold water and got baptised.

Mike's story is wonderful. In just a few short months he has moved from being married to a Christian to following Jesus himself. This is what we are about as church - making disciples. Mike is a lovely guy who has met our beautiful Saviour.

This coming Sunday we are baptising three more people, I just hope it will be above zero degrees this time!

Has the potential to make very tangible the idea of baptism representing dying...

Didn't we baptise people when it was snowing once? That was excellent.

We did indeed, I think it is great that the Church is stepping outside of its box and not holding Baptisms on a given (special) sunday morning. Good work RFC, I think it is great to have 2 baptism sundays in a row, is this the first time in RFC History???
