‘Giant’ Confirmations at Wells Cathedral on Bonfire Night!

 

    Following our own ‘Giant’ baptism service in September (see last issue), 6 from Ascension confirmation-1went on to be confirmed at Wells. It really was giant, with 77 people making their public profession of Christian faith!! That is an amazing thing to do, and Bishops Peter and Ruth trod with a light touch and great joy. Bishop Peter spoke of this great Cathedral built by those who put the stones here to welcome you  – and saying how we were to be living stones built up into the living temple of Christ.

confirmation-2  Bishop Ruth led the service with warm and easygoing style. At the end all the candidates were given a candle, and the Bishops led the way out down the aisle with sparklers! Quite a day to celebrate being part of the people of God!
