Easter Day at St John's Izmir was an especially happy occasion, when four young adults who have been worshipping at St John’s for a year or more, and who have prepared for Baptism the past four months, were baptised. Susan (83) from Didim was also baptised. She was supported by fellow members of the congregation from St Mary's Didim (a coastal city 100 miles south of Izmir). Former Archdeacon Colin Williams joined us as our Holy Week Preacher.

Those who have just been baptised, plus two young adults from St Nicolas, Ankara, are due to be confirmed by Bishop Robert on Thursday 11 May.
