Vicar's update 4th July           Steve4to5-3244373775-O

It was good to see the church so full yesterday as we baptised Eva Watt, Ciara Lambaga, James and Christian Ladwa.  It was a great service and some of our Cool Christians helped us to understand more about the life and ministry of our patron saint, Stephen.   Thank you to all who helped with the service, practical arrangements and café times.
 
Our next full immersion baptism service will be on Sunday 18th September – if you are interested and haven’t yet been baptised please speak to one of the clergy as soon as possible.  If you have already been baptised but would like to renew your baptism vows by full immersion do let us know.
 
Next Sunday (10th) we will be joined by Azniv Pambakian from Christians against Poverty to talk about the work of Ealing CAP, one of our mission partners.  Azniv is a good friend of St Stephen’s and I know we will enjoy having her with us again.
 
We are planning to run Growing Leaders again in September but are holding an information evening on Thursday 14th July at 8pm.  If you want to know more please do come along and we will try to answer your questions.
 
Wishing you a good week.
 
With my love
  
Steve
