Confirmation and Craft

Two successive weekends at the end of November 2008 saw two very different United Benefice occasions at St Faith's.

On Sunday, November 23rd, candidates from both churches were confirmed by Bishop Martyn Jarrett, with one member of the congregation making an affirmation  of her Baptismal vows,
and two being received into the Church of England. The first five pictures below show the candidates before the service, then  afterwards with the Bishop and the Vicar.
A big congregation then enjoyed a fine buffet in the hall, and admired the special Confirmation Cake.

Those confirmed were Gareth Griffiths, Brian Evison, Michael Taylor, Zoe Taylor, and Barrie Johnson,

Those received into the Communion of the Church of England were Paula O’Shaughnessy & Michael Shields
Eunice Little renewed her Baptismal Promises.

On the following Saturday, our annual Craft and Activity morning took place. In the Hall, a squad of skilled and crafty helpers helped children to make a range of decorative items.
These were shown off to their parents in church at the end of the morning, where each child lit a candle and Fr Neil read out the prayers each had written earlier.
Saint Faith gave her blessing to the children, and looked modestly please with the success of the event!
