Proclaiming One's Faith.

The Resurrection on the first Easter was a proclamation by God the Father that the death of Jesus was no accident but had been part of his plan to save the world. So he raised Jesus to reign with him in glory.

In the early church Easter was the occasion when many were baptised to show their faith in this risen Christ. This year, there was a service of baptism, renewal of baptismal promises and confirmation at Leicester Cathedral, which took place at 6.0am to coincide with Sunrise. One of our younger members of the church, Katie Tincello took part and confirmed her faith as the Bishop of Leicester laid hands on her head.

About 15 people from St Paul's went to the service to support Katie. We wish her well in her future life in Christ.
