Harwood Baptism September 2017

Today we celebrated the baptism of Mollie Alice Yarwood, with over a hundred friends and family.

The Rev. Anne officiated but Mollie was unappreciative of another wash, even if it was in a font.

We pray Mollie will have a long and happy life and welcome her to God’s family.

Henry George Yarwood Baptism

We were delighted to welcome 4 generations of the Charlesworth Family today, for the baptism of Henry George Yarwood. Church was full and Henry George looked very content with Mum and Dad, John and Helen. Later, he took the Rev Anne in his stride as she splashed him with water at the font and then happily posed for photos. Natalie Elliott, Martin Charlesworth and James Mason were godparents and the following party was held at Nantwich Football Club.

May Baptisms

We have had two Baptisms in May 2015.
The first on the 17th was for Dominic and Emma Jonas’ daughter, Natalia Anastazja.
Natalia was beautiful but had obviously been overdoing things the night before and slept most of her way through the service.

Then on the 24th, Lindsay and Nichola Murrell brought Jake Frederick Thomas.
Jake didn’t think much of the quick wash at the font in his new suit.
He took the towel off the vicar and dried himself.

We welcome them both and their families to our church.

Eleri Sue Rickett Baptism

Eleri took her baptism all in her stride today at St. Bart’s. Candles, singing, prayers and water, not one raised a single complaint.
Parents, Philip and Mari, were justifiably proud as they, the godparents and family watched the event.
Welcome Eleri and we hope to see you soon at Messy Church, joining in all the fun and games.
