Preaching Team
This team meets on a regular basis to share ideas regarding forthcoming sermon themes based on the Sunday lectionary, and to discuss helpful articles and books on preaching.
The team comprises the Rector and the Readers.

Baptism Team
This work involves both adults and young people, but since most children who are brought for baptism are babies, the focus for preparation is on the adults.

Wendy Stiddard runs a baptism preparation course on two consecutive Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. to 11.30 a.m. This course is held five or six times a year.

Baptism service sidesperson co-ordinator: Carole Harris
Baptism anniversary card co-ordinator: Carole Harris


Confirmation
There is generally a confirmation service each year which is conducted by the Bishop. The timing of the confirmation groups is in relation to the date of the confirmation service.

Please contact the Rector, if you would like to join a confirmation group.

These groups are also open to those who simply want to explore the spiritual life without further commitment and to those who would like a refresher course in the Christian faith.

Confirmation groups are run for both adults and young people.
