On Sunday 17th June the benefice came together, with the families and friends of those confirmed. We pray for all who were confirmed:
We thank you for all who are taking the step of faith
And coming forward for Confirmation:
The keen; the cautious;
The patient and impatient;
The fearful and the doubting.
You have stirred the depths of their being,
Where deep speaks to deep;
And your word captivates
The heart and the imagination;
Where we can never be the same
Because we at last know we are known by you.
Lord, Stay and play
And teach and inspire
And show them such wonders of your love
Your mercy and your creative imagination
That they may approach your throne
With hearts on fire with love for you.
And be sealed, forever yours. Amen.
