Today we were lucky enough to have a visit from Bishop Rose, the Bishop of Dover. She came to baptise three children and confirm six children. She arrived at school and led worship where she told us all about her childhood in Jamaica and her calling to the priesthood. She chatted to the children as they asked her questions. After she had looked around the whole school, met the staff and children, she then had lunch with children from years four, five and six who were going to be confirmed.
The service was lovely and the school and parents all attended to witness the children’s life changing moment. Everyone sang beautifully and Bishop Rose used the service to encourage all the adults to remember to guide the children in their faith.
