Growing in Faith

We are all encouraged to grow in the expression of our Christianity. Here are some opportunities to do that. To enquire further, please contact the Rector. 

Confirmation is offered for young persons (12+) and adults, involving preparation  and conversation, before a gathered Service in the Cathedral or another local  church. There is no upper age limit. 

Admission to Communion is a course of preparation for children (7+) who are not  yet confirmed, but would like to receive the bread and wine in our services.  Please enquire on your child’s behalf. 

At our services:  

Would you like to become a robed Server at the Parish Communion? Would you like to be an occasional welcomer and helper at baptisms after the  0930 service? 

Might you like to consider leading our prayers occasionally at 09.30am? 

Giving to the church 

One of the changes in Summer 2020 was to introduce a contactless machine for  occasional giving. Now, it is timely to remind everyone of the different ways to give to the Church, and to this purpose a separate sheet is available in our  churches. Many thanks to all who give regularly to our churches and to those  who have reviewed their giving recently.
