Please arrive for an 11.00 start – we will be in an open space between the Lido Cafe and the Princess Diana Memorial in Hyde Park.
We’ll give you instructions on arrival about how this service with a difference will run from 11 – 12, followed by a picnic, and the baptisms in the Lido swimming area at around 12.30.
Children will be with their families most of the time, but have their own program during the small group session. We will organise a few sport games (soccer, frisbee, etc) after the baptisms, so if you’re keen please stick around!
If you would like to get baptised on short notice please contact Dan. Need some inspiration? See our baptismteaching from a boat on location here, and a previous baptism here!
In between the service and the baptism we will have a picnic. Please bring something to eat (for yourself and maybe a little extra for those among us that might forget) and something to sit on.How to get there
