Surprise Easter Baptism

Easter Sunday 2017 saw a wonderful service of celebration with an unexpected twist.  The church was looking wonderful for the occasion. 

   

Particularly with an artful 'Garden of Gethsemane' model by the craft group

     

MIdway through the service and completely without warning, Rev Julia announced that a member of the church had decided that very morning, at the Sonrise Service on Bell Wharf, that she should be baptised and confirmed.  And so it came to pass. Moments later, Julia duly baptised and confirmed Jean Edmonds, and the picture below records a truly joyful event, witnessed by a delighted congregation. 

We've waited a few years to say this, but Jean - congratulations and welcome to Highlands Church.  We are very proud indeed of our err... newest member.
