K1 – Express Yourself
Express Yourself is a confirmation in the Immanuel Church where you get the opportunity to explore the Christian faith with creative expressions, conversations and challenges. You get to know new people, go to camp and try different activities. The confirmation starts in January and ends in September.
The key word for K1 is community, and we focus a lot on doing things together in a group. We work with music, dance, art, sports, role play, joint creations etc. You choose according to your own interest, no previous knowledge is required.
A central part of the confirmation is the summer camp at Camp Holsby which offers canoeing, high altitude track, various sports activities and other adventures.
Everyone is welcome – whether you believe in God or not, whether you are baptized or not.
Cost: SEK 2,500. Camps and food are included in this cost.
We always offer sponsorship. No one should have to forgo the confirmation for financial reasons.
Temp contact person: Esther Kazén
Other congregations have the opportunity to join Express Yourself. Contact your local pastor for info.

Express Yourself – Konfa Immanuel wants to be a safe place that values diversity and is characterized by warmth, love and respect. We think that differences are an asset and an opportunity. We want the confirmation to be a place where you feel that:“This is where I belong – whoever I am, wherever I come from.” Everyone is welcome here.
Our teaching and values are based on the Immanuel Church’s vision and approach. (länk)
“We are united in a belief in Jesus but have no categorical answers to theology, spirituality and biblical views. We value that everyone is unique and wants to offer a culture of respect and trust in the way they interpret, seek and express the Christian faith. ”
“We want to show respect for diversity in all our contexts. It permeates our views on piety, theology, language, church views, marriage, sexuality, music, youth work, and much more in worship and activity. ”
