SMILIN CHILD

When I got my one year old son christened at Christ Church Melton I was invited to attend the playgroup that the church runs. After making the promises to God at my son's christening, I began to think about how I could fulfil my promises, and I began by going to the playgroup. After we had attended the playgroup for about a month one of the mothers from playgroup asked me to attend an "Invite a friend to church" day. I felt very welcomed by the congregation and realised that I could fulfil the promises made at the christening as well as begin my own faith journey. That was about 7 years ago. I assist on a roster basis at Sunday School and the church playgroup every week.
