It was a real blessing to celebrate with our sister church, St Timothy’s in Bulleen, the baptism of ten adults and thirteen children. Following the baptism at St Tim’s was a celebratory dinner, along with the sharing of testimonies from three members who have been walking with Jesus for some years now. Praise God for the growth of his kingdom and pray for those newly walking in faith as this is often a challenging time.
