NEW Christians were being welcomed into the faith at Rotherham Minster today.
A group of 37 adults and children from churches in the Rotherham area, were due to take part in the special service of confirmation to join the Church of England.
Each person was to be presented to the Right Reverend Peter Burrows, Bishop of Doncaster, for confirmation.
Speaking beforehand, Canon David Bliss, Vicar of Rotherham, said: “It is wonderful to see so many candidates. I am sure it will be a special event in their lives.”
The Bishop of Sheffield, Dr Steven Croft, was due to be leading a similar service today, when more new Christians will be welcomed at Sheffield Cathedral at the diocesan confirmation.
