The City of York Council have given us permission to use St Sampsons Square on Easter Sunday afternoon to hold events. Just outside Brown’s department store we will be having a rolling programme of celebrations from 12.30pm until around 4.15pm. At 3.00pm we will be holding open air baptisms in a portable baptistry.
Several churches will be bringing their candidates for baptism, and all those wishing to take part should approach their Minister.
Special guest for the day will be Archbishop John Sentamu, who will be speaking and also taking part in the baptisms along with leaders of a number of local churches.
We will also be inviting people onto ‘the red carpet’ and giving them the message that Jesus thinks they are VIP’s – so very important that he died for them.
