Confirmation Service 2016
Confirmation in 2016 will be on Sunday 24th April at 3pm at St Mary’s, Shenfield. If you would like to think about Confirmation then please contact the Rector, Reverend David Thomas on 220360.
Courses leading candidates to confirmation are held annually at either St Mary’s, Shenfield or St Peter’s, Hutton on alternate years. Each year the Bishop of Bradwell, Bishop John Wraw, takes the confirmation service and occasionally the Bishop of Chelmsford, Bishop Stephen Cottrell. After the service there is usually the chance to talk to the Bishop and even try on some of his vestments as shown in the photos below.
