Service of First Holy Communion

What a joy and privilege it was to be part of this lovely service yesterday, when these five beautiful children took their first communion. How blessed we are at St George’s to witness the start of their Christian pilgrimage. I pray all of us at St George’s will encourage them and their families as we all learn together what it means to be Kingdom People.

Since 1997 the Church of England has allowed churches to admit children to Communion before Confirmation, Saint George’s Church adopted this option some years ago. and we now have a number of children from the age of 6 who, after a period of about 6 weeks preparation with the clergy, receive the sacraments.  13619853_732985130174008_3768344479391448686_n(1)
