Interested in Confirmation?

During June The Loft (our Sunday morning Cafe Church) will take a slightly different format to usual as we will be going “back to basics”. There will be a series of three Sunday morning meetings looking at what Christians believe, what it means for Christians to say we belong to God, and what living the Christian life looks like in practice, that is, how Christians believe God leads us to behave. These sessions are suitable as preparation for confirmation, and also as a refresher course for anyone who wants to attend, whether or not you have already been confirmed. All are welcome to come along from 9.30am-10.30am in the parish centre room 1 on 10th, 17th and 24th June.
