On Sunday St Barnabas Stoke celebrated the baptisms of four rangatahi. It was a fantastic day, including one baptism at the church and three at Tahunanui Beach.
The four young people, Heidi, Molly, Adam and Reuben, are all part of St B's Youth and were baptised by their amazing youth worker Georgia Allen. Heidi also spent a number of years as a member of The Shed youth group in Greymouth and it was incredibly special that Nicki Mora travelled up just to see this important moment in her faith journey.
We are so blessed in our diocese to have such dedicated youth workers — like Georgia and Nicki. The work they do sharing Jesus with and supporting the faith of our young people is so important, as we can see in the testimonies of Heidi, Adam and Reuben. Watch the video above.
