Baptismal service

Save the date - 7th November, Baptismal service

Posted on: | Category:

On Sunday, 7th November we will hold a Baptismal service. Please get in touch with admin@360life.church to express an interest in getting baptised.

What is Baptism? If the meaning of baptism could be boiled down to one word, that word would be identification. Baptism speaks primarily of a personal, public identification with Jesus Christ.

How Baptism Relates to Jesus?

  1. It means we have turned from the old life of sin to a new life in Jesus Christ.
  2. It means we are publicly identifying with the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.
  3. It means we are openly joining the ranks of those who believe in Christ.

Do Christians Need to Be Baptised? Our Savior commands us to follow His example in all things, including baptism: Matthew 28:19 says, "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit." At the beginning of His public ministry, Jesus chose to be baptised. John the Baptist was calling the Jewish people to confess their sins and demonstrate repentance through immersion in the Jordan River. Sinless Jesus joined the crowd at the river and asked John to baptise Him. The Lord chose to affiliate Himself with sinful man. When we follow His example in the waters of baptism, we're publicly confessing our faith in the Savior and identifying ourselves with Him.

Why Is It Important for Christians to Be Baptised? It's the initial rite of the Christian's obedience, but it also is a sign that builds up the faith, not only of the person being baptised, but of the rest of the Church community, is they ... They're watching the gospel and they're hearing the gospel sloshing around in the water. Jesus has given that to us because he knows we need to see it, we need to experience it, we need to be reminded of it.

And every time we see baptism, we're reminded we're at war, and we're to take this gospel to the ends of the earth, discipling the nations and baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Community Groups & Events

Elsewhere we explain the meaning of the 360Life logo, shown below.

A 360life is a life wholly surrendered to the kingship of Jesus. It is a life marked by serving others. Give Life.

Our community groups and events are invariably tagged with the 360Life logo since these groups exist as an expression of the intent of 360Life Church to serve the wider community of which it is a part.

The stress and demands of modern living are taking their toll on our mental health and wellbeing.

A Kintsugi Hope Wellbeing Group is a safe and supportive space for people who feel or have felt overwhelmed, providing tools for self-management in a facilitated peer-mentoring style setting.

Wellbeing groups run for 12 weeks, each week looking at a different theme of mental or emotional health such as anxiety, disappointment, loss and resilience.

The aim of these groups is to equip individuals with self-management tools at the same time as providing space to develop relationships with others.

Sessions include group and individual activities designed to help participants to accept themselves, to understand their value and worth, and grow towards a more resilient and hopeful future.

An estimated one-fifth of the population (9 million people) are lonely. Charity research in the UK says that our culture leaves many completely isolated, in what the press is calling “the UK’s loneliness epidemic.”

In response to this, our Neighbourhood Chaplains team are aiming to help tackle loneliness through befriending. We will offer a listening ear and practical help towards meeting our neighbours’ physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

We hope to launch Neighbourhood Chaplains before the end of 2021.

Help available will include “helping hands” for simple daily tasks which those in need may not be coping with. There will also be an opportunity for regular phone calls or visits for those on their own who would like someone to chat to. Volunteers will also offer prayer and signposting to other helpful local agencies and events.

On The First Visit

On your first visit, the Welcome Team who greet you as you arrive at the church will be pleased to direct you to the right group for each of your children. 

On a child’s first visit, parents and carers are asked to fill in a registration form so we have basic information about the child, together with details of any specific medical or dietary needs and any other information that you wish us to know about your child.

Kids are an important and valued part of the God’s family (see Matthew 18: 5-6) and we aim to reflect this in 360Life Church.

In most Sunday services, the children stay with their families and carers for the first 30 minutes or so. That means they participate in worshipping together with the whole church. Then they go to age-specific groups elsewhere in the building. That’s their opportunity to learn and interact while the adults continue in the service.

The children’s groups on provide a secure, safe and fun environment, where children feel included and valued.

Our goal is to support parents and carers with what they are already building into their children’s lives in the rest of the week, so that their children will come to know Jesus for themselves.

Besides Sundays

Children 4-11 years are invited to occasional extra events that take place at other times of the week.

These include Messy Church, games evenings and film nights. Children are also encouraged to attend special church activities that involve the whole family and every age group, such as summer picnics.

Older children (8-11yrs) attend a weekend camp most years.

Safeguarding

The church has a formal Safeguarding Policy for the protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults. All kids’ volunteers and leaders are checked with the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB).

Small Groups

Most of the church’s small groups meet on Wednesday or Thursday evenings in various homes across Stockport.

Groups are comprised of 4 to 6 people - once they hit 9 they multiply into 2 groups.

The focus of the groups is "discovery" Bible study, where the emphasis is on "What do we now need to do...? AND "How did we get on with what we went away last time to do?"

Anyone can join a group and we do our best to take account of personal preferences, although much depends on how full groups already are.

The Covid pandemic has demonstrated graphically how valuable small groups are. No wonder the Leadership Team are so keen to encourage everyone to be part of a small group!

How To Join A Group

In the first instance, please speak to a member of the Leadership Team.

Giving To 360Life Church

360Life Church does not receive funds from external sources, except for very occasional (and modest) grants that are sometimes given to charities for very specific purposes.

This section of the website is designed to help you find convenient ways to give to 360Life Church, especially during the Coronavirus crisis. Please contact us if you need any assistance.

And God bless you as you give to Him.
