A resource to help leaders prepare young people for confirmation. This 'prequel' to the confirmation gift book Living your Confirmation (SPCK, 2012) contains 19 ready-to-use, interactive sessions to use with young people who are preparing for confirmation. The first part of the book focuses on the promises made in the confirmation service and relates to the topics covered in Living your Confirmation, including prayer, Holy Communion, going to church and social action. The second part includes sessions on sex, alcohol, image, exams, science, porgraphy and suffering. An introduction considers the point of confirmation and its role in a young person's faith journey.
