The Flame of Faith 2012
To coincide with the Jubilee and the Olympics, Churches in the Buckingham Archdeaconry will be sharing the Flame of Faith. The flame will pass from deanery to deanery, as each one receives 200 candles to distribute from churches into their local community. It is hoped that prisons and pubs, schools and social clubs, nursing homes and nurseries will receive the Light of Christ in the form of a small candle in a glass holder. Follow us here, on twitter #flameoffaith and on the Oxford Diocese Facebook Page. I launched the initiative in Lavendon Church, Newport Deanery on Sunday where the flame was lit and 200 candles were distributed.
