Croydon North Deanery Confirmation
Lovely to see so many people at the Croydon North Deanery Confirmation, held this year at St Luke’s Woodside.
There were over 20 people of all ages, from Holy Saviour, St Oswald’s and St Luke’s, being confirmed. It was lovely to have Bishop of Croydon, Jonathan Clark, presiding, with many of the Deanery priests present.

Great afternoon and evening on Thursday 10 May, as Holy Savs Croydon engaged with members of the local community passing by the church. Moving how many people wanted us to “say a little prayer for me”.
