Confirmation Service Pictures

St George’s was packed to the rafters on the 4th November as we welcomed confirmation candidates from both our own congregation and other local churches plus the Bishop of Reading, the Rt Revd Andrew Proud.   If you missed the service, or would like to relive the joy and warmth of the occasion, here are a couple of photos below.  
Grace and peace to all who were confirmed that day.  

PS:  Revds Becky and Terry are always delighted to hear from anyone wishing to be baptized or confirmed!  You can contact them at vicar@st-george-newbury.org.uk
