Step by step.

Join us on a journey as we explore the Christian faith.

There will be a series of Across in the Wood sessions beginning in September which will explore the Christian faith. At the end of the series, for those who wish to, there will be an opportunity to be confirmed in a special service with the Bishop of Ripon, the Right Reverend Dr Helen-Ann Hartley.

Confirmation is a significant point on our faith journey when we reconnect with the promises which were made for us at our baptism and commit to continuing to learn and grow in our faith and our relationship with God. If you have not already been baptised it will be possible to be baptised and confirmed in the same service. In order to be confirmed you will need to attend a minimum of 5 of the 6 sessions.

The Across in the Wood sessions are open to everyone, young and old, whether you want to be confirmed or not. If you are under 16 please bring an adult with you.

Sessions will take place 1-4pm in Grinton churchyard on these Saturdays: 15th September, 6th October, 17th November, 15th December, 9th February, 9th March. The Confirmation service will be at 4pm on 7th April.

To help with our planning and catering, it would be helpful if you could let us know if you would like to come. Please contact the Rev. Alison Stewart Smith by 1st September on 884665 or email alisonmstewartsmith@gmail.com

I am old enough to know better than to sign up for the 'Deloitte Ride Across Britain' in September this year, cycling 980 miles in 9 days. That said, it is all in a good cause; the Motor Neurone Disease Association, for whom I'm aiming to raise £2019.
