2014 Youth & Confirmation weekend @ Castlewellan Castle Friday 14th – Sunday 16th March 2014
The Confirmation weekend is coming around again and with this you should find all the information needed for your group to attend.
It has always been a fantastic weekend for not only those getting confirmed but a weekend open to all young people who want to grow and deepen their faith in a really fun and interactive setting . . . and all for the subsidised cost of just £45! You can't get better!
As always the weekend is designed to compliment your Confirmation preparation and this year it will go alongside the theme that the Bishop will be using in the Confirmation Services –‘New Life in Christ’ from 2 Corinthians 5:17. However, because it will be looking at basic faith and discipleship it will be suitable to any of your young people aged from 12-16 years –even if your parish is not planning a Confirmation this year.
Castlewellan has proved a great hit with groups and we will have the usual large team of leaders there to work with your young people and support your own leader(s). We have also got some great activities for young people such as laser skirmishing, climbing wall, archery and laser clay pigeon shooting.
Our main speaker this year will be Craig Lutton who is a teacher and from Groomsport Parish. He will be sharing on this year’s confirmation theme of ‘New Life’ over 3 sessions:
1.What does it mean to give your life to Jesus?
Exploring what it means to give our lives to Christ (and also within the context of Confirmation promises) and to encourage them to ask seriously what it means for themselves and others.
A basic ‘How to’ on prayer for young people. The importance of prayer for a young Christian and various methods and strategies for a healthy prayer life.
Exploring the basics of what the Bible is about and looking at how we can encourage young people to engage with God’s word.
Places are limited and will be given on a first-come basis.
