Confirmation coming up!
Bishop Peter will be visiting our parishes for confirmation on Tuesday 18th November at 7:45pm. Please put this date in our diary now. This will be at St Matthias.
Confirmation is a sacrament - one of the great signs of God's love within the Church. By it we are given the strength of the Holy Spirit to live as Christians in the world. In our parishes at the moment people are confirmed before receiving Holy Communion.
If you are interested in confirmation, please talk to one of the clergy. We will be starting preparation classes soon. Confirmation is offered to adults and to children (about Year 5 onwards). Candidates who haven't been baptised will receive baptism just before they are confirmed.
Those who have already been baptised and confirmed, please come along, support our candidates, and renew your own commitment to the Christian life and mission.
