Twice a year the parish organises special youth services, mainly for our confirmands, but open to all. As many young people as possible are involved and we also partner with a group from Youth With A Mission (Ungdom I Oppdrag). So on Friday we had a ‘scratch’ band with young people from Norway, Sweden, Sri Lanka and England (and some old people from Norway and England!). At the last minute our regular drum was unable to play so we were very glad to have a visiting Sami man who also had his own home made ‘ethnic’ drums made of seal skin and pink string.
Here are pictures taken in rehearsal and then in the service:
