Confirmation

Confirmation

Confirmation is the opportunity for each one of us to claim the Christian faith for ourselves, and to confirm promises made on our behalf at our baptisms.

As part of a confirmation service, the bishop lays hands on each candidate, asking God to confirm them with his Holy Spirit.

We have a new Confirmation class, for adults and teens, on Sunday afternoons, starting on Sunday 2 September at 4:45pm, beginning with looking at The Fish, and The Cross. This year we are expecting about 4-5 adults, and perhaps 10-12 teens who may be interested.

Sometimes those who have been confirmed for a few years like the opportunity to do a ‘refresher’ – so if you are one of those, do come and join the Sunday afternoon sessions too – you’d be most welcome.

4 of our sessions will take place before the Confirmation service, and a further 3 following it. The date of the Confirmation Service is the evening of Wednesday 26 September, venue to be confirmed.
