Confirmation  In the Church of England, those who have been baptised as infants are encouraged to make their own declaration of faith as adults, when they are confirmed. There will be a Confirmation service locally on 8th October this year - if you would like to explore what being confirmed involves and consider this for yourself, please talk to Catherine or Di. This is usually for those aged 13 and over (no upper limit!).

The Frugal Lunch on Saturday 11th at the Baptist Church was a good start to the beginning of Christian Aid Week raising £182. Thank you to all who contributed to making it a success. Chris Wisson


Westfield Open Garden on Sunday 12th May raised £1,460.10 for the Organ Fund at St Mary’s. A great big thank you to all who came, baked and helped in any way.

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement inviting Christians to pray during the nine days between Ascension Day and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ. Locally we have an Ascension Day service in Yelden (30 May 7.30pm), and a Prayer event in Thurleigh (5 June 7.30pm).  There is also a celebration in St Albans Cathedral on Pentecost Sunday (9 June) at 6.30pm. If you would like a lift to any of these, or resources for your prayers, please ask Catherine.
