Interested in Confirmation?

For anyone who would be interested in finding out about confirmation please get in touch with Patrick in the next week. (This does not include those young people already preparing.) Young people need to be in at least 2nd year, but this is also for adults. Confirmation is an opportunity to publicly declare your commitment to Christ and his Church and to receive prayer that God would strengthen and confirm you by his Holy Spirit.

Ash Wednesday

This year it is on 17th February. We will be holding our usual service but at this stage the exact format is undecided. If you have any views on the matter please get in touch. For example, would a service on Zoom be preferable to a livestream on FB?


Prayer Points:

  • for renewed passion for world mission
  • the sick in body, mind or spirit and those who are bereaved
  • wisdom for the Government
  • peace in eastern DR Congo and relief to get to those who need it most
  • an end to the terrible war in Yemen and for relief to reach those in need



I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.
