Anchored is a baptism / confirmation course where ministers can invite their young people to explore issues of faith and provide the opportunity to profess their faith through baptism / confirmation. The course will begin with an overnight retreat led by PYM (Presbyterian Youth Ministry) and PCYM (Presbyterian Children and Families Ministry). We ask that both the minister and youth who have signed up for the course attend this retreat. At the retreat you will be alongside other churches from Northern Presbytery who have also signed up for this course.
After the retreat, the minister will lead their youth in 5 sessions over a series of weeks at their church. Once all the sessions are complete, youth are welcome to decide whether they would like to be confirmed / baptised.
The first Anchored Pilot overnight retreat took place from Saturday 14th August – Sunday 15th August 2021. Take a look at some of the pictures below!
