We have evenings for parents to get involved in the Confirmation of their youngsters. These include taster sessions of the Chosen course being followed. These should be over in the hour, depending on how many questions you have! We look forward to seeing you in the church hall. There are activities of a more practical or spiritual nature we’d like you to be involved in as well: read on!
Monday 16th September 8pm Enrolment (please bring your youngster’s baptismal certificate and £20 to cover costs).
At a later date to be agreed we will introduce you to the course, show a video clip from the presenters and give you a taster of the course book. We will give you your own summary booklet of the course and set you on the trail of a good sponsor.
