Public Swimmers Join In at Glen Eira Christian Community Church Baptisms
Mrs. Sekunthala is baptised by Pastor Newton Daniel at Monash University Pool
Curious and surprised swimmers got more than their work out at Monash University Pool recently. When Glen Eira Christian Community Church could find no other suitable place to conduct baptisms, they approached Monash University, who graciously allowed them to book and use a lane of the Monash Uni Swimming Pool.
As the people were baptised, most of those doing laps in the pool stopped and joined in and watched. Afterwards, some of the people came forward and talked to the church group and really appreciated what they were doing there. What an amazing and public witness of these significant acts of obedience and commitment!
Since this Monash Uni Pool baptism, 5 baptism services have been held in the last 4 months with 10 people being baptised. The church has grown from 6 to around 40 members (plus more than 10 children) in less than one year. “Every Sunday is a miracle Sunday service where people are being delivered from demonic spirits or being healed” says pastor, Newton Daniel. “The gates of hell shall not prevail when the church prays, and the children of God come together and worship Him!”
