Author(s): Jacqui Hyde, Sandra Millar, Paul Butler
We Welcome You is a ready-made, three-part course to help prepare parents and godparents bringing children for baptism.
Informal and participative, with the emphasis on welcome, the sessions cover:
- Getting ready - The big day itself! - What Christening means for the rest of life
We Welcome You uses a wide range of learning styles and resources, from film clips, creative storytelling, reflection and discussion, to craft and icebreaker activities. It also offers resources to help the church family understand its key role in baptism and offer the best welcome possible.
Designed to be used either in small groups or with one family at a time, We Welcome You is suitable for large and small churches alike.
