Youth Confirmation Sessions

The Fab Three  

Energetic, knowledgeable, fun are three words to describe the three young people at the first of their youth confirmation sessions.

We looked at and discussed the significance of a crucifix, pulpit and altar. Claire’s colourful stoles helped us think about the Church seasons and we reminded each other about Lent and Holy Week. It was good to get up close to the Communion silverware and reflect on the importance of Jesus’ death and resurrection. These three young people will be able to join with other young people and adults, who had their confirmation sessions before Covid, at a Confirmation service on Monday 28 February at Lanivet Parish Church at 7pm.

Youth confirmation sessions continue

Just look at the concentration levels as the young people memorise key dates and events on the growth of the Church, from Jesus through the Reformation to the present day, from a diagram, as part of a game.

The importance of the Bible

This week we looked up Bible references, noting that we need to have the book, chapter and verse to find them. We compared Bible references to coordinates in maths and grid references in geography; they all enable you to pinpoint a particular place. Our game was to find an animal mentioned in each Bible text and the three young people mastered the art of looking up references and spotting the animal. Psalm 42 mentions a deer panting for water which is just how we are to long for God.

Confirmation rehearsal

Some of the young people and adults being confirmed were at Lanivet Church going through the order of service. Claire had to pretend to the Bishop Huge and Helen had to be Claire!

Confirmation Service

Lanivet Parish Church

Monday 28th February 2022

 

At a very moving service, Bishop Hugh blessed the candidates as they confirmed the beliefs made at their baptism.

It was wonderful to see both young people and adults expressing their commitment to God.

The theme of the sermons was:

God loves us,

God forgives us,

God welcomes us.

Anyone wishing to be confirmed please contact Revd Paul Holley.

Taking the lead at service at St. Petroc's

On Sunday 1 May, our young people were involved in the service alongside Revd Claire. They led, read, prayed, served and blessed the congregation at the 10am service. The gospel reading was brought to life through drama, As the photos show, the story was about the disciples hauling in a huge catch of fish before having a fish breakfast with Jesus on the shore, after he had risen from the dead. The blessing at the end was a song, based on Romans 15:13, accompanied by British Sign Language, including the sign for PEACE that Bishop Hugh showed us at the confirmation service in Lanivet.
