Mayor’s Youth Concert: Sunday 27 January
Please see the advert below for this very special Community Event. We would love to see you there.
The School Chaplain invites parents and guardians to consider over the Christmas holidays, whether confirmation might be appropriate for their child / children. As always, pupils are more than welcome to join the other candidates for the preparation course in order to see whether this might be something which is for them. The course will run for the last six weeks of the Lent Term on Wednesday evenings, and our 2019 Service will be on Wednesday 8 May at 1800 in the School Chapel when the Bishop of Gloucester will be coming to preside.
Please could I ask that all declarations of interest be made to the Chaplain (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Saturday 19 January.
