Welcome to St Peter's Parish, Bromsgrove
In due course John the Baptist appeared; he preached in the wilderness of Judaea and this was his message:
‘Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is close at hand.’
This man John wore a garment made of camel-hair with a leather belt round his waist, and his food was locusts and wild honey. Then Jerusalem and all Judaea and the whole Jordan district made their way to him, and as they were baptised by him in the river Jordan they confessed their sins....
"I baptise you in water for repentance, but the one who follows me is more powerful than I am, and I am not fit to carry his sandals; he will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and fire."
Matt 3:1-2, 4-6, 11
