The Apostle Peter preached this sermon seven weeks after Jesus’ resurrection, and ever since then new Christians have been baptised: initially by full immersion in a river; then whole households were baptised; and finally Christian households began to ask for new-born infants to be baptised as well—hence the transition from full immersion in a river to the pouring of water from a font.
The font was made by the stone-mason Christopher Kempster, who was also the mason who built the church itself.
