Confirmation marks the point in a person’s journey of faith when they affirm the promises they made, or had made on their behalf, at their baptism. Like baptism, this is a time of celebration in a person’s life of faith.
Confirmation usually takes place after a person has explored his or her faith with others in the church. We offer confirmation preparation where key aspects of the Christian faith can be explored, and details of the confirmation service and the statements and promises a person makes are discussed. The preparation usually includes exploring prayer and worship, the Bible, the history of the church and its doctrines, so that the individual may understand more of the faith and the church family to which they belong. This will include helping the person to play a fuller part in the church and identifying points that will help him or her to grow as a Christian.
To discuss Confirmation, please contact our Rector (Rev Sheena Williams).
