This evening at 7:30 pm St Mary's was the host for a Confirmation Service for Churches in the Chichester Deanery. The Church was filled with the candidates, their parents and godparents and other family, and members of the church family at St Mary's. The confirmation was performed by Bishop Mark of Horsham, who preached a most inspiring sermon. After the confirmation the Bishop celebrated the Eucharist, and after communion the choir sang 'Blessed by the God and Father' by Samuel Wesley, the soprano soloist was Sarah Amos, with Lucy and Emily 2 of our junior choristers singing the responding solo part. The newly confirmed followed the Bishop out of the church carrying a lighted candle to signify that they were going out into the world to spread the light of Christ.
There was a reception after the service in the new rooms, magnificently catered by Anne and Marilyn. Every one rejoiced in the presence of our new full members of Gods Church.
