My Confirmation

I never talk about my spirituality but
I thought that the wonderful time I experienced last Sunday was worthy of talking about.

Confirmation was really the next logical step for me. I was at a point in my life when I needed to move my faith forward. I didn’t feel it was quite good enough to just drop into the church now and again and only pray when I remembered. I felt I needed to have a relationship with God and a relationship with those that understood what I was feeling. The whole of my life I have been trying to experience that one moment when God appears. The whole of my life I have had good guidance, my Godmother Ruth Harvey, my parents and family and great mentors such as Mrs Carter from Bath Road Church, The Revd Crossland , The Revd Barraclough and now The Revd Simon Stevenette. I have always tried to live by a good moral code, driven by strong values. It is only now I know why I was doing all this. I was taking a journey to today. Christ Church, the people and my worship there has changed my life. The only way I felt I could demonstrate to everyone that I have arrived in this most important wonderful place, was to be Confirmed and start the rest of my life.
