Welcome To a New Family (Paperback Book)




The ideal gift for newly baptised people of every age!

This highly engaging and colourful hardcover book follows three quite different families as they are welcomed into their local parish church and highlights how their differences are accepted as they find their new family. The book is intentionally inclusive, sacramentally orthodox and will have wide ecumenical appeal.

Featuring parallel text for both adults and children, the book invites grownups and younger readers to connect with the celebration of baptism in a modern context. With characters that can be found in any community and congregation, the unique illustrations bring the ideas of the text to life in a vivid way.

This book is an inclusive and contemporary resource for parishes, schools and parents that explains the celebration of baptism in a modern context.
