Confirmation Service 19th November 2017

Date: November 28, 2017

St Mary Magdalene hosted a confirmation service for seven churches in Tooting and Wandsworth Deaneries on Sunday 19th November. It was a joyous occasion, with thirty candidates for confirmation, including ten from St Mary Magdalene ourselves, and we would like to thank everyone who helped to make this occasion such a success. Many people have worked hard behind the scenes preparing the church, and helping the candidates prepare to make this commitment to Christ, and we continue to pray for all those newly confirmed or new to faith.

Our visiting bishop was the Rt Revd Martin Wharton, retired bishop of Kingston and Newcastle, who kindly presided and preached for us. His sermon included a memorable explanation of confirmation.

 

 

Two candidates were baptised as well as confirmed, and afterwards the whole congregation was sprinkled with blessed water from a rosemary branch to remind us of our baptismal vows.

 

Here are some of our candidates as the bishop confirms them.
