This week’s Crossings Story is from cession|community. cession|community is a Wesleyan Church based in the eastern suburbs of Tāmaki Makaurau – Auckland.
cession|community held a baptism service on 18 July at which 4 people were baptised – one adult, a teenager and 2 children. It was a great night of celebration and a full house with friends and family supporting those being baptised.
Pastor Brett Jones commented on the age range as being a particular highlight with the younger children finding faith through a combination of intentional home life and the ministry of Cultivate Kids. A teenager owning her own faith and an adult finding fresh faith from an upbringing outside the church, really captured the focus of cession|community’s ministry.
This is the 9th baptism celebrated at cession|community in 2021 – a third baptism service is planned for the summer and post lockdown!
