Confirmation 2007

The last time the Bishop gave permission for a Confirmation in our benefice was Sunday 15th April 2007 at 10am in All Saints' church Wickhambrook. Classes began on the 19th November (1.45 - 2.45pm) in the Benefice hall. Young people above the age of nine right up to adult were invited to be Confirmed and encouraged to put their names forward to the Rector. This was a very special occasion with the Confirmation being conducted in our benefice.

In total six children and one adult put their names forward for Confirmation following the introduction meeting held on the 5th November. The confirmation on the 15th April at Wickhambrook All Saints' was presided over by Bishop Jeremy Walsh.
