On Palm Sunday, Bethany was confirmed at Silcoates Chapel. She'd taken a long time to think about this commitment, and discussed how she might 'witness' her faith with Rev Alan Evans, Rev Janine Atkinson, and Rev Janet Lees. With a total of 6 ministers present, I think her decision was one that pleased a lot of people! During the service, Beth spoke about her faith journey and how her love of God and love of science sit happily side by side. Alan Evans supported her with moving and thought-provoking advice for the future. All those who felt they'd been involved in some way in her faith journey laid hands on Beth while Rev Lees blessed her. We enjoyed a celebratory tea in the dining hall afterwards. Thank you to all those from Longcauseway who came to support Beth and witness this wonderful occasion. I was a very proud mum that evening!
