Confirmed in Your Faith

Last Sunday, 29 November 2015, Bishop Christopher, the Assistant Bishop of Leicester visited St Cuthbert's Church, Great Glen for a service of confirmation. There were a number of candidates who wanted to be confirmed, including our own Sue Frost. There was a group from St Paul's to support her and also a group of her friends. In the service, the candidates renew their baptismal vows to follow Christ, and the Bishop then laid hands on them, praying that the Holy Spirit might dwell in them richly.
We pray that this step on her Christian journey may be one that stands out for Sue.
After the service, Sue returned to St Paul's, where she was warmly welcomed, and joined in the Bring and Share lunch that had been organised both to mark Sue's confirmation and the visit of James Lawrence from the Church Pastoral Aid society.
