Thursday 10th May

7:30pm—9:00pmAscension Eucharist and Confirmations

Following the tragedy of Good Friday and the miracle of Easter, the final twist in the Passion Story is today, as we celebrate Jesus' Ascension into Heaven 40 days after his Resurrection. 

This service has some extra significance for us, as we are joined by Bishop Paul, who will be confirming people into the Church. Confirmation is the stage of life where a Christian reaffirms their baptism vows for themselves, after they are usually made on their behalf as a child.

All who have been on our various Nurture courses this year (Faithbook/Pilgrim/FISH) are encouraged to come along and support those who are taking the next steps in their journey of faith, to give thanks for our own journeys over the past year, and to renew our commitment to grow in faith together.
