On 28th June 2015 we welcomed The Right Reverend Robert Atwell, Bishop of Exeter, to a special service of Confirmation.

We were delighted that six people were confirmed; Ben, Charlotte, Grace, Lisa, Matthew and Ruth.

'Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which you affirm for yourself the faith into which you have been baptized and your intention to live a life as a committed follower of Jesus. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands by the bishop'.

Please continue to pray for these people and to ask God to give them the power through the Holy Spirit to enable them to live in the way of Jesus.

Bishop Robert clearly enjoyed his visit to us and writes "please pass on my thanks to all the good folk of St. Matthias who made my visit such a memorable occasion".
