The Baptism of Elsie Chimfumnaya Onochie

The newest member of the Body of Christ here in St. Andrew’s, Kyrenia, Elsie Chimfumnaya Onochie, daughter of Kenechi and Nneka, was welcomed in the Sacrament of Baptism on All Saints’ Sunday, 4th November 2018.

On a wonderfully happy day in St. Andrew’s, once again a packed church enjoyed a thought-provoking sermon from Fr. Edward Jervis as he stressed the importance of all the saints, all those who profess to be Christian, not just those specially chosen by the Church over the ages. And that included all present who professed Jesus’ name, including the newest member, baby Elsie.

Below are some photographs of the joyous day.
