Today (Sunday) we celebrate the Rite of Welcome for this year’s Journey in Faith group. Our enquirers, Clara, Gordon, Owen and Vanessa have answered the call, and now take the first step towards full communion with the Church. The next milestone on their journey will be to meet our new Bishop, John Arnold at the Cathedral for the Rite of Election on Sunday, 22nd February. We will accompany them with our prayers. They with the help of their sponsors and the Journey in Faith team will continue their period of enquiry until after Pentecost.
