Confession

CONFESSION_1

Have you ever wanted to know for sure that you were forgiven for forgetting about God, or for any unkind or thoughtless things you have done. There are things which trouble all of our consciences, and it can be hard to move on from them. The sacrament of Reconciliation (or confession as it is commonly known), is a gift, given to us by Jesus Christ, to help us know God’s forgiveness, and to move on with our lives, seeking to love God more fully, and our neighbour as ourselves.

When we make a confession to a priest, we give voice to the things we have done wrong.  We are given advice and counsel, and the priest then pronounces absolution in which a priest declares, in the name of Jesus himself, that we are forgiven our sins. Absolution lets us know for sure that that those things on our conscience are put away for ever; that God truly forgives us.

Our Rector, Barnaby, is happy to offer this sacrament to any who might be interested in receiving it, to talk about how this sacrament might help you, howe to go about making your confession if you have never done it before, and whether you would like to make confession part of your life.
