Confirmation

Confirmation marks the point in a person’s life when they affirm the promises that were made on their behalf at their baptism and commit themselves to life of discipleship.  The person’s participation in the life of God’s people, which began at their baptism, is confirmed by prayer and the laying on of hands by the bishop.

At St Mary’s and Christ Church we hold an annual confirmation service.  Those who are to be confirmed must attend a series of confirmation classes which are held in two groups, one for children and another for adults.

Confirmation candidates who were not baptised as infants are baptised by the bishop as part of the service.

For more information please contact the Vicar; please see here for more details of this year's service.
