Confirmation Service 2019
This year’s annual confirmation service was held in Canford Magna Parish Church on Saturday 4th May and was once again a wonderful, memorable occasion.
Families, godparents and friends of the twelve candidates arrived for the 11 o’clock service conducted Bishop of Salisbury, The Right Reverend Nicholas Holtam alongside school chaplain Phil Jack.
Readings were by Canford staff Al Tyndall and Iona Rigby, both active members of the school church community, with traditional hymns including ‘All things bright and beautiful’, ‘Amazing Grace’, ‘Jerusalem’ and ‘In Christ alone my hope is found’.
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:
