Experience Blaze


Bishop Peter and NYMO invite Confirmandi aged 11 - 18 to attend Blaze on Saturday 28th April 2018 at the Ridgeway Centre in Milton Keynes.

Blaze gives Confirmandi from across the Diocese the opportunity to come together: to be celebrated and encouraged as they prepare to be Confirmed, through an engaging and fast-paced day.

The day starts at 11am and finishes at 5pm, which includes a vigil Mass for Sunday. At different points in the day, smaller groups of Confirmandi will have the chance to meet Bishop Peter and ask him questions. 

Throughout the day, Confirmandi will take part in a number of interactive workshops that include a mixture of different themes and activities. Although there will be some input before the groups go and explore their workshops, our aim is that Blaze is experiential: giving Confirmandi the chance to engage with the wider church and to be impacted by the many ways the Holy Spirit is at work within her!

The cost for both Catechists and Confirmandi is £10. Lunch is provided for catechists, but Confirmandi must bring a packed lunch. 

If you are just beginning your Confirmation programme, and think you would like to bring a group to Blaze - do email Fiona , to give us an indication of interest and likely numbers. However we cannot reserve places, and places are only secured once we receive payment in full and your completed Group Booking Form. Confirmandi each need to complete a Confirmand Booking Form and then you will need to complete a Group Booking Form and return it to NYMO. You can print the below Blaze Information Sheet, which has all the key information to hand, and explains the booking process.
