Once again we were privileged to have the Bishop of Gloucester come and preside at our annual confirmation service.

Reverend John Ash said, “This year the service had a more intimate feel with just five candidates proclaiming their faith in Christ, and claiming their baptismal promises for their own. In and amongst the rich symbolism of baptism, confirmation oils and communion the particular stand-out highlight was hearing a couple of the candidates share their personal stories. I am always struck that the God of the Bible brings such tremendous blessing when he is welcomed into an individual’s life.”

After the formality of the service quite a number of pupils joined the Chaplaincy team for a slap up dinner, and not a little laughter!
