Ever thought of discovering more about the Christian Faith?
What about those promises made when I was christened?
What exactly happens at a Holy Communion service and how can I take a fuller part in this?
What does it mean to "confirm" my baptism promises?
How can I live life to the full even when there are difficult issues to be faced?
Does Jesus have a part to play in my life now and in the life of our world today?
If these are some of the questions you have, or you may have others, and would like to know more about confirmation, please contact Pauline on 01707 875940.
The Hartford Hundred West Group was formed in 1977 as a 'united benefice' combining the four parishes of Little Berkhamsted, Bayford & Brickendon, Essendon & Woodhill, and Ponsbourne. Ponsbourne had been under the charge of the Rector of Little Berkhamsted since 1971.
