Today was the biggest confirmation service this year with 32 konfirmands and at least 750 in the congregation. Whilst it’s a luksus (luxury) problem, we only have seating for a little over 650, so a good number of folk ended up standing through the hour and a half service – in the church, the entrance hall and even in the car park! Thankfully today felt like summer (we sat out on our veranda this afternoon in shorts and tee shirts whilst the thermometer showed 22 C / 73 f in the sun), so we set up an out door relay speaker.
We are very grateful to all the volunteers and staff who have pitched in to help with the services, especially the band who have given up a significant chunk of 2 whole weekends!
And this was the sunset last night (just for a bit of colour):
