At the beginning of September our Teen Confirmation program came to a high-point as we had our Confirmation Camp. We have twelve stunning confirmation candidates this year (four from Grace and eight from Emmanuel) They are Kelsey Anderson; Joshua Campbell; Alex de Koning; Richard Finlayson; Theodore Gray; Reder Joubert; Taryn Kotze; Nicole Malcomson; Christopher Sotiralis; Gareth Tyler; Louis van Zyl; and Pierre Volschenk.

The camp is always held at the church and we started on Friday night with a braai followed by the “Flywheel” movie which raises some very important discussion points. On Saturday we explored membership and some ethical challenges.

We were very impressed by the very high level of engagement that we have seen in our young people. They asked challenging questions and were eager to learn. In the individual discussions we had with them, we sensed that they had grappled with the issues of faith and had were ready to make real commitments.

After the camp, parents and siblings joined in and we had a super braai together.

A very special vote of thanks must go to Craig who worked really hard to put the logistics together so that we were well-looked after and that the camp was organised with excellence.
