Confirmation Service at St Andrew’s Church, Oxford

Four U4 and Sixth Form girls were confirmed into the Church of England on Sunday 28th April at Headington’s Parish Church, St Andrew’s.

The presiding Bishop, the Rt Rev Stephen Platten, was once a curate at St Andrew’s.

In his homily, he recalled the times when former Headington girls formed the St Andrew’s Action Group, which led to a number of them getting confirmed.

School Chaplain Mr Tom Howell said: “His address reminded us that though faith is a gift and a grace from God, it is always followed by action!

“It was a delight to see Roisin, Jenny, Madeleine and Jocelyn, confirm their faith in Jesus Christ – just one week on from Easter Sunday.”
