A DIFFERENT KIND OF BEACH PARTY!
Staff Reporter / 2010-06-19 11:01:54
On Sunday 6th June 2010, a special Service was held at Playa de los Naufragos in Torrevieja. Nine people (5 men and 4 women) were baptised by total immersion in the sea. They were watched and supported by family and friends and considerable interest was shown to this not so “normal” beachside occurrence! Those baptised all attend the Torrevieja Christian Fellowship (TCF) Church, which continues to grow at its new premises on Avenida de las Cortes Valencianas in Torrevieja..
The baptismal service was led by Pastor Roy Davies and included songs and hymns sung to the accompaniment of guitars and saxophone.
Pastor Roy stated “This baptism was a public demonstration of faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour; and those being baptised were confirming their desire to live in obedience to the teaching of the Bible.”
TCF would like to thank the beach lifeguards, and the staff at the Foreigners’ Office, for their help in staging this event.
TCF is open to people of all nationalities. The services are in English; and around 200 people attend each Sunday at 10:30am.
