Why do some people get Baptised? We went and found out!

Why do people get baptised? … This was a question which arose during an RE lesson, so we decided to go and find out. What better way than visit the church ourselves.

We visited St.Marks church in Layton and learnt about why a church is an important place for Christians. Reverent Hannah showed us what happens when a someone gets baptised and some of the reasons why people choose to do this. People get baptised so they can belong to Gods family and be loved, protected and cared for. We also learnt about holly communion, the giving and receiving of bread and wine, and what the word belonging means to ourselves and to Christians and why it is so important.
