St Gregorys Bedale

Confirmation Service

On 3rd April 2016 St. Gregory's played host to a United Service of Confirmation when we were joined by the congregations of St. Mary's, Thornton Watlass, St. John's, Leeming and Burrill Mission Church to celebrate this special day with our seven confirmation candidates.

We were honoured to have the service led by James, Bishop of Ripon.

It's always a pleasure to welcome the Bishop to our church and his sermons are invariably inspiring and insightful. The theme of his sermon today was "Get A Life".  A thought-provoking message on how to live a life with Jesus which was particularly relevant to our Confirmation candidates.
