Mount Merrion confirmation service marks significant milestone

Friday 05 May 2017


Mount Merrion celebrated a memorable day on Sunday, April 30 – its first confirmation service in 20 years. 

On what was a truly inspiring morning at The Church of the Pentecost, a total of 22 people were confirmed (see picture below) with their number including two parishioners from nearby St. Columba, Knock.

Nineteen of the 22 were Mount Merrion adults, each of whom had undergone total immersion baptism en route to their confirmation.

The service – described by Bishop Harold Miller as “a really wonderful occasion” – provided irrefutable proof of Mount Merrion’s on–going revival.

Bear in mind the fact that at one stage not too long ago the weekly congregation was down to a mere 20 parishioners, prompting real fears about its long–term future. 

But the Rector, the Revd. Adrian Green, has worked tirelessly with the help of those brave souls in rebuilding the church.

Bishop Harold said: “Mount Merrion is a genuine good news story and one which, I hope, will serve to inspire others.”
