Our aim is to provide Parish Clergy and Catechists with meaningful, exciting and easy to use resources for nurturing young people in the Christian Faith. We hope to continue to bring more resources. However, there are many other resources out there that can be used to complement or even replace the resources we provide. Here are some of them.

A quick run down of some good Catechetical and Confirmation Preparation resources available. The list is by no means exhaustive!

  Faith Confirmed
Peter Jackson and Chris Wright
SPCK, 1999
ISBN 0715149881

This is a great resource for those preparing for Confirmation or for those who have been confirmed and want to know more about the Christian Faith. It can also be used by those leading groups preparing for Confirmation.


  Youth Alpha
Alpha International, 2002
ISBN 1904074316.

Based on the popular Alpha Course this is a version for young people.  There is also an accompanying CD-ROM. A young person’s magazine style booklet is also available.


  Preparing to be Confirmed

  In the Spirit
