Confirmation and First Communion

Posted on

Today was my confirmation at Church. Since coming back into my faith last year and starting attending Pudsey Parish Church, I’ve done lots of things that have made my life so much better, I’ve started going to a weekly Cell group, I’ve been through the Alpha Course, and I’ve met loads of wonderful people.

So at the end of the Alpha Course when the Vicar said he’d be running weekly sessions at the Vicarage to prepare for Confirmation, I knew this was the right time. Since the beginning of January, I’ve been going to these classes with a small group of people, and tonight the Bishop of Richmond, Paul Slater, came to conduct the service, which started with our confirmation and then we all took Communion together, which was absolutely great.

I can still say that my decision to go to see Archbishop Sentamu at the Civic Hall last year was one of the best I’ve made, my life is so much better now!

Cornwall Day One – Fowey

Posted on

The first day of our holiday was mostly spent driving from Bristol to Cornwall after staying the night with my uncle the night before. But after we’d unpacked at the hotel, we decided to go for a drive and check out some of the Cornish countryside. After getting stuck behind an old VW campervan on a single track road for what seemed like ages, we ended up taking a ferry boat across a river to Fowey (pronounced Foy as in Boy), a picturesque little town with a lot of boats on the crystal blue water and a lovely little church where someone was getting married.

In the evening, we drove across the bridge to Plymouth to the cinema to see Maleficent, and had the chance to drive across it in sunshine and darkness. Surprisingly, Cameron loved the film, even though it was a Disney film! It definitely wasn’t aimed at young children though, it was a bit dark and scary!
