Order for the Administration of Holy Baptism

The Rev John Heron, MA, BD, STM, Minister at Stevenston High, Ayrshire

This is a commentary on the 1963 Order prepared for “experimental use” on the back of the work of the Special Commission on Baptism. “Zwinglian” approaches are explicitly disavowed and the active work of the Holy Spirit affirmed. The essay comments both on the liturgy as prepared and on such linked issues as arise. John Heron was secretary to the Commission on Baptism and a member of the Aids to Devotion sub-committee which produced the Order.
