"Hate, at the heart of this kind of sin, is not negated by bombing, by punishment or some eye for an eye revenge. It is negated by the love of a tortured and crucified God coming into a room and wishing peace on those who were quite prepared to run off when he is arrested. The darkness of sin is only overcome by a change of minds, by love, trust and forgiveness - and not just at the personal level but particularly at the national level too."

Baptism - summary

 

We welcome individuals, families, children Ė all ages to be baptised.  Whoever is baptised (=christened) is dedicated to God, begins a new journey of faith, joins the largest faith community the world has ever seen and Godís Spirit rests, in a new and special way on the individual.  If it is a child being baptised then parents and godparents formally take on the responsibility for the spiritual development of the child, and make significant promises.  

 

Jesus was baptised, by John the Baptist.  It was a beautiful moment when Jesus realised what his life was to be about and it was the beginning of his three year ministry in the Middle-East.

 

Baptism normally takes place during the worship of the church (Sotogrande at midday or San Pedro at 10am) on a Sunday.  Being in with the rest of the church is important as the church community joyfully welcomes the newly baptised into its family.  

 

For the baptised, this is a start of a new journey in faith, so baptism here, and most other churches, involves some preparation to help the first steps through the purpose and promises.  If possible we will arrange a preparation time for you/parents/godparents to attend.  We will invite you to worship with us in church in the weeks before your baptism.
