Advent Sunday saw two Gillingham (Kent) Baptist Churches join together to celebrate Advent and two baptisms, writes Pastor Paul Hill
. Gillingham Baptist Church (GBC)
has kindly allowed The Bridge Baptist Church
(who normally meet in a Community Centre in North Gillingham) to use its baptistry and premises in the past, but on this occasion they both had baptismal candidates and shared the service. It was an amazing service, with others describing it as “electrifying” and “inspirational”.
Advent Sunday will never be the same again for any of us! To God be the glory! Full story here: http://www.baptist.org.uk/Articles/486540/Advent_baptism_joy.aspx
On 20 November, Robert Miller, Edward Smith and Imogen Chalk were baptised at Temple Baptist, Pontypridd
. The baptism took place in our new baptistry and was followed by a buffet lunch for the family and friends of the three young people. It was a truly joyous occasion.

Adrian Birsan was baptised by Limbrick Wood Baptist Church
Pastor, Darren Bovis-Coulter, during Sunday morning worship on 27 November. Adrian read out his testimony to the congregation, which included his wife and daughter and also his brother and brother-in-law who had travelled from other countries, telling of difficult times in his past life and how the Lord has turned his life around – praise the Lord!
While still open, Limbrick Wood’s baptistery was then used by City Church who had five baptisms.
The Latvian Church, who use Limbrick Wood’s building every Sunday afternoon, would also have used the baptistery, but their Pastor was not available that day – they have requested use in January.
We praise the Lord that this baptistery that had been unused for so long has had good use throughout 2016 with more to come in 2017!

The congregation at Attleborough Baptist Church, Nuneaton
, celebrated the baptism of Jeff Pagett on 16 October when he was also taken into church membership. Jeff started attending Attleborough Baptist Church thorough helping out at the Job Club and being invited to a Christmas service. We have enjoyed travelling his journey to faith with him and thank God for his blessing.
