Baptism Classes

I'm not sure it's 'done' to admit that I never took Baptism classes myself (I'd done URC membership classes eons before), and have never until now offered them to others - one candidate at a time, all people I knew quite well, been around for ages, a couple of conversations felt about right. But there you go, that's how it is.

Today amidst coughs, sneezes, and other lurgy symptoms, I started work on a material for some Baptism classes I'm about to lead over the next four weeks.  The first one is just about there (just as well, since I deliver it on Saturday) and I have titles for the others...

Week 1 – Why be Baptised? What does Baptism symbolise?

Week 2 – Why be a Baptist? What is the Declaration of Principle and how does it work?

Week 3 – Why be part of Gathering Place? Our values, worship & witness

Week 4 – Practical considerations and planning the service.

Looking forward to some great conversations with this small group.


  • BUGB do a great course "Making a Splash". May be targeted at young people but I've used it for everyone and it's well received
