Vicar's update 19th NovemberSteve Newbold1

What an incredible morning we had yesterday when fourteen members of our church made commitments of faith through baptism, renewal of baptism promises and/or confirmation.  It was great to have our Bishop Pete with us and to see the church so full that there was standing room only.  We were only able to hear testimonies from about half of the candidates but you can read them all here. Do keep praying for the candidates as they journey on in their faith.
