This summer Michael will be preparing a group of children for their confirmation. Preparation classes will be during June and July - and then in September. The Confirmation Service will be at 4 pm on Sunday 20 September, and will be led by Bishop Stephen Platten. If you have children who would like to be confirmed, please talk to Michael; children are usually aged above 10 - and adults are also of course most welcome to join the group!
