Churches from our Benefice met together in February to witness and celebrate the confirmation of four candidates from St. Botolph’s, Helpston. Pictured with Bishop Donald are: (l-r): Barry Pullen, Rev Dave Maylor, Sam Permarker, Gillian Permarker and Lexi Jones. A special and beautiful cake was made for the occasion by Sally Hudson. Bishop Donald laid hands on each of the candidates’ heads (as in the early church), to confer the gift of the Holy Spirit. Confirmation gives baptised Christians the opportunity to ‘confirm’ their faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.
