Confirmation is about making a commitment to the Christian faith and to lead a Christian life.
Preparation courses usually start in the spring and run fortnightly for 4 sessions until the confirmation around Easter time, after which there are 2 further sessions. Anyone wishing to be confirmed will need to attend one of the START COURSE.
Attending the course does not necessarily commit you to being confirmed, but gives you the opportunity to think if you want to take this step. You need to have been baptised to be confirmed, some will have been baptised as children, others may need to be baptised before the confirmation. Please speak to Janet Roberts or Jennifer Levick if you want to think about confirmation.
If you are interested in knowing more about confirmation and the course, please get in touch with Janet, our Vicar (tel 924 35510) OR Email Janet: firstname.lastname@example.org – attaching completed startform.

What does the Church of England say about confirmation? Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which you affirm for yourself the faith into which you have been baptized and your intention to live a life of committed discipleship. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands by the confirming bishop. The Church also asks God to give you power through the Holy Spirit to enable you to live in the way of Jesus.
