Confirmation Service with Bishop Nick Baines

A joyful service of Confirmation was held on the 17th June with Nick Baines Bishop of Leeds conducting the service. The inspiring stories of the twelves candidates can be read at the centre of this Grapevine. Seven of them were also baptised by full immersion in the Baptistery of Wakefield Baptist Church on the day before.

He was accompanied by Ralf Meister, Bishop of Hanover, who enjoyed being part of the congregation.

Bishop Nick wrote: 'Thanks so much for such a warm and easy welcome yesterday. I realise that you and your teams do all the work, week in and week out, but the bishop wanders in and does the easy bit. I am deeply grateful to you all. Ralf enjoyed it immensely – and not just professionally. He spoke a lot about it and how moved he was. Thank you for your ministry. Please thank your colleagues for being so kind yesterday.'

May I echo the Bishop's thanks to all those who contributed to a beautiful service of worship and spiritual commitment. And thank you to all the candidates for their willingness to share their stories.
