The Durham Deanery Confirmation included 16 candidates from All Saints Newton Hall and Blue Coat School. Held at St Oswald’s church in Durham the candidates were jointly confirmed into the Church of England and Methodist church with both Bishop Mark and Revd Shaun Swithenbank laying hands on each candidate. The candidates were also welcomed by Revd Shaun into membership of the Methodist church with a handshake.
As you can see from the photo, all the candidates enjoyed their special evening which truly reflected the ecumenical nature of All Saints.
