Bishop Alan came to Martham to confirm Alan, Milenia & Fran. They are pictured right with their confirmation candles alight. It was a very happy service with joyful singing led by Howard and the Benefice choir. Refreshments were served in St Mary's after the service.

Sadly our Rector, Karen, who had prepared the three for their confirmation, was unable to be present.

The Rural Dean, Revd. John Kinchin-Smith, on his first visit to St. Peter's Church. He came to admit Jean into the office of Churchwarden for Clippesby for 2017. This is an annual event,  as a warden is only admitted to serve for one year and their vows have to be renewed each year they ar elected to serve.

Also present were 3 members of the PCC (Sara, Jane & Rachael) and friends Brenda & Terry MacWeeney.

Sydney Marjorie Ivy being christened by Revd.  Sandy watched by her brother Charles Archie  who had also been baptised in the same ancient font 2 years ago.

Thebaptismal entries are in the historic Parish Register which dates from 1813  when parishes had first to separately register    Baptisms, Weddings & Funerals

instead of putting them all in the  same book.

Daniella being baptised by our Rector, Revd. Karen with the Revd.  Sandy in attendance as Dani's sponsor.  Dani had attended Confirmation classes but because she was about to go travelling she would not be here for Confirmation.
