Bishop Steven will be coming to our parish to preside at a joint Sung Eucharist with Confirmation service at St Mary and St John Church on Sunday 16th July 2017. We will gather for this joint service at 6.30pm in the evening, and so there will not be a 9.15am service at St Alban’s nor a 10.45am service at St Mary and St John that morning. There will, however, be an 8am Said Eucharist at St Mary and St John, as usual.

We will be joined by candidates and supporters from the neighbouring parish of Cowley St James. Bishop Steven will also preach the second sermon in our series exploring the nature and purpose of the church through St Paul’s letters to the first Christian communities.

Following the service, we will have a bring-and-share supper in the Richard Benson Hall next door. Do join us to witness and celebrate the step of faith which our candidates are taking, to go deeper into the life of God through Christ our Saviour and by the power of the Holy Spirit.
