On Friday 12 January 2024, the confirmands of Parow Valley Congregation travelled to the picturesque town of Ceres to enjoy a fun-filled weekend. The weekend served as final preparation in anticipation of their confirmation on Sunday, 04 February 2024.
The group was accompanied by a support team as well as Priest Joseph Swartbooi, the Rector. Upon arrival at the resort, the team rushed to the swimming pool.
The group responded well to the discussion the Rector had with them on Saturday in preparation for the Sunday divine service.
The group confirmed that they got to know each other much better over the course of the two days and wish to remain connected after their confirmation day. The Rector encouraged them to look out for one another, protect each other, and walk with God into the unknown future, knowing that He is aware of what the future holds.
The team attended the Sunday divine service in Bella Vista congregation and were in the presence of Apostle Gavin van der Hoven.
