ConfirmationSunday 22nd May Today a wonderful Confirmation service was held here at 10.30 a.m. with the Right Rev. Graham Dow. Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of Manchester. The Church was packed with friends and families as we welcomed both children and adults as they made their confirmation promises and received their blessing and first Eucharist. A special shared Parish lunch was then shared in the Church hall and we were delighted to also wish one of our congregation...a special friend to all...Phil...a wonderful 90th birthday.
