Ten people baptised and/or confirmed at one service

On Advent Sunday (28th November 2010) the Rt Revd Christopher Boyle, Assistant Bishop in Leicester Diocese, came to St Peter’s to baptise and confirm new Christians.

Six adults were confirmed, and three of them were baptised as well. One couple brought their four children for baptism at the same time, making ten altogether. The only trouble – we were so busy and excited, we forgot to take any photos!

After the service we had lunch together. One of the new Christians said, “It’s like having a new family!” Another shed a tear as she said, “I’ve just realised how important this is to me – like crossing a new threshold.”
