One Voice York, a network of Christian churches and leaders of different denominations who work together in York, England, organised a baptism of eleven people for April 3. This is the fourth year of such ecumenical baptisms there. Each candidate for baptism had their minister join them in the water to baptise their candidate with Archbishop Sentamu.
After the baptisms, men from Teen Challenge told their stories of changed lives. Teen Challenge help young people with drug and alcohol addictions. Read the account in the York Press and the Church Times. ITV showed this video (only viewable from within UK).
