Confirmation has traditionally been a ‘rite of passage’ (symbol of maturity) in many Christian communities for a well over thousand years.  At Immanuel we offer a Confirmation program to people over 13 every second year and the next one starts in FEBRUARY 2020.

Our goals for this experience are:

  • To develop a positive peer group of faith
  • To develop supportive relationships with mentors who are slightly ahead in the journey of faith
  • To experience the key parts of following Jesus
  • To provide tools to deal with the faith challenges of the future

To be involved participants need to register for Soularise Youth on our front page.

The program has traditionally included a regular group meeting plus a number of camps…

  • On Saturday the confirmation team climb Mount Allan (up one side, down the other)
  • Parents are required to meet their teen at the end of the hike at 3pm to clap them in
  • This is a critical part of the journey and involves a special time at the top!
  • More information as the event comes closer.
  • We will be seeking for some parents to come to assist with logistics and cooking.
