Confirmation Service 2018
The annual confirmation service was held in Canford Magna Parish Church on Saturday 5th May.
Families arriving for the 11 o’clock service walked in glorious sunshine through the school grounds to the church. Bishop of Salisbury, The Right Reverend Nicholas Holtam conducted the service, alongside school chaplain Phil Jack. Readings were by Canford staff Al Tyndall and Jack Newton, both active members of the school church community, with traditional hymns including ‘Tell out my soul’, ‘Amazing Grace’, ‘Jerusalem’ and Guide me, O thou great Redeemer’. Twenty one pupils were confirmed across all year groups.
A retiring collection was taken for the Sudan Appeal and after the service families enjoyed a buffet lunch in John o’Gaunt’s.
Many congratulations to this year’s confirmed pupils:
