The Pilgrim Way: Baptism and Confirmation Course

Wednesday February 15, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Bishop Robert and Bishop RachelBishop Rachel and Bishop Robert invite you to explore the Christian faith and consider baptism and confirmation.

If you’re over 18 and considering being baptised and/or confirmed, the bishops would like to invite you to discover more about a life following Jesus. Adult baptism and confirmation allow you to make a public statement of your faith and trust in Jesus Christ and your commitment to follow him, as the one in whom life in all its fullness is to be found.

The Pilgrim Way is a six-session course (five on Zoom and one in person in the Cathedral) based on ‘The Pilgrim Way’ on Wednesday evenings from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. With Bishop Rachel and Bishop Robert, participants will explore the scriptures and the core beliefs of the Christian faith, our vision for the world, what it means to live as a Christian, and worship. A range of Christians will join the course to give us insights into their faith and understanding.
