On Saturday 4th May, College was delighted to once again welcome the Right Reverend Rachel Treweek, Bishop of Gloucester, to a very moving service at Christ Church Cheltenham, where she confirmed 22 CLC students in the Church of England.
The College Chaplains led weekly preparation sessions for girls from LC3 to SFC1 during the Spring Term, exploring the Christian faith and introducing patterns of prayer and discipleship designed to enable the girls to flourish on the next phase of their journey of faith and beyond. This preparation concluded with an afternoon’s retreat, giving the candidates space and time away from College the week before the service.
Four students were baptised as well as confirmed, and the contribution of College Choir added significantly to this very special service.
Those baptised and confirmed were Cat, Zara, Dieta and Bukunmi. The girls confirmed were Jess, Ife, Jemma, Tatty, Loelia, Laura, Jasmine, Persia, Starr, Rebecca, Gabby, Madeline, Amy, Hermione, Cara, Emma, Florence and Ursula.
Please pray for them all as their journey continues to unfold.
Revd Josie Goodwin, College Chaplain
