St George's Church in the centre of Leeds had the privilege of baptising 10 adults in a recent evening service, the third adult baptism service of the academic year.
Most of the candidates were in their twenties, including several international students from different parts of the world, some of whom came to faith through the recent Alpha series run at St George's. Four of the candidates had decided in the previous few weeks that they wish to follow Jesus.
At the end of the service another lady also became a Christian for the first time. After a conversation with a member of the clergy she was spontaneously baptised too. The Revd Luke Briggs, the vicar at St George's, said, "We are grateful to God for the opportunities we gain as a city-centre church, but grateful also for smaller local parishes who do things we can't do and so often see very different kinds of fruit."
St George's are a vibrant Anglican church and their vision is to be 'Sharing Life, Loving Leeds'. This means they are here to help you find God, grow in relationship with Him, share life with those around you and impact the city and beyond. Their new Alpha Course began on 24th May and if you are interested in finding out more and exploring the Christian faith, show your interest here.
