Marking Advent with affirmation

Have your say

THE Bishop of Sheffield will hold a special service to mark the start of Advent tomorrow.

Dr Steven Croft will be guest preacher at the picturesque church of St Nicholas in Upper Bradfield, to start the countdown to Christmas.

The service, which starts at 10.30am, will include a ceremony for confirmation of 11 members of Bradfield Church who will take the opportunity to affirm their faith in the presence of the Bishop.

The Rector of Bradfield Rev Alan Isaacson said: “We are delighted the Bishop will be with us for Advent Sunday, and the chance for us all to reaffirm our Christian faith together will be encouraging for everyone.”
