A very special Christmas Day

Christmas Day, 25th December 2018, was a very special day in the life of St. Andrew’s.

Bishop Michael, who had led our worship at the First Communion of Christmas (Midnight Mass) on Christmas Eve, once again celebrated and preached the following day.

In addition he also confirmed Denise Umpleby who had been prepared for the Sacrament of Confirmation as part of this earlier group who were confirmed on 21st October. Denise was unable to be present on that occasion but Bishop Michael graciously agreed to confim her on Christmas Day.

Below are some photographs of the joyous occasion.
