2575: Baptist Church, Shepton Mallet, Somerset, England

25 August 2013

Regarding the report on Shepton Mallet Baptist Church:

I am being picky here. However, Baptist churches do not have a font of any description. "Baptismal pool" is the usual designation.

Also, Baptists practise "believers' baptism" which is not always necessarily "adult baptism." It is always an issue of great debate as to how old a person has to be to make a statement of faith.

So that's me on my soapbox. Sorry to be so picky.

Revd Simon Russell
