On Saturday 22nd March we welcomed 170 people, family members of the candidates and their friends, to Christ College for a very special confirmation service.
As always people came from all over the country to be with the candidates, and the mother of one of the candidates, Jessica Facey, came all the way from South Africa. The candidates who were confirmed were both challenged by the Bishop of Brecon & Swansea, The Right Reverend John Davies, and felt supported by all those around them.
This year, sixteen pupils were confirmed plus Miss Cathryn Francis from the Religious Studies and Psychology departments.
There was a huge investment from the choir and senior pupils who spent most of Saturday morning preparing for the service as well as looking after all the confirmation candidates and their supporters. The pupils were once again helped by Upper Sixth pupil, Sophie Rudge, who faithfully saw them every week during their preparation. The Catering department also pulled out all the stops to make the celebration after the service both personal and generous.
Christ College’s Chaplain, Rev. Stephen Baker, said: “Bishop John was in excellent form in leading the service and making everyone feel that they were involved. He pointed out the great challenges that Christianity offers us all, and at the same time how the Christian faith was at the very heart of our search to be fully human.”
