Confirmation rehearsal is on Wednesday July 8th at 7pm. It is very important that all involved attend the rehearsal, which is likely to take about 45mins.
The parish Confirmation service will take place next Sunday July 12th at 11am.
This is a very important service for the whole parish – for those being confirmed, for those of us who are confirmed members of the church as we renew our baptism promises and support our newest members, and for those who may still be considering confirmation in the future. So please do your best to attend.
Bishop Mark will lead the service as usual.
There will be no service at St Agnes that day. Please keep in your thoughts and prayers the 8 children and 2 adults who will be confirmed on that day.

Bonus Ball There are six numbers free for this. You pay £1 a week, and if your number is drawn as the lottery bonus ball you win £25. This raises a small but steady income for church, and works best if all numbers are taken. Peter Brooks (at St Thomas) runs this. Please ask if you would like to take on one of the numbers.
