Confirmation Service at Parish Church

The annual confirmation service was held in Canford Magna Parish Church on Saturday 14th May. 

Families arriving for the 11 o’clock service welcomed the unseasonably warm weather as they walked in glorious sunshine through the school grounds to the church.  The Right Reverend David Hallett conducted the service, alongside school chaplain Phil Jack.   Readings were by Canford staff Al Tyndall and Clive Jeffery, both active members of the school church community, with traditional hymns ‘Great is Thy Faithfulness’, ‘I Vow to Thee My Country’, ‘Lord of all Hopefulness’ and ‘Love Divine, all Loves Excelling’.  Seventeen pupils were confirmed, with two also being baptised.

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:
