A Modern Request

Thursday 10th March

A interesting contact, and a pattern for Huddersfield Parish Church.

A woman walks into church, one of the priest staff is loitering and strikes up a conversation. They had been looking for a church in which to baptise their baby. 

“Wasn’t St. Peter’s beautiful and wasn’t it warm and would they be able to bring their baby?”

Practicalities covered and questions answered and ask, a simple conversation.

Then the God moment – “Could I be baptised too? But on a different occasion?”

More affirmation and a small service after the main Sunday service. 

From contact to commitment, and no stumbling blocks put in the way.
