Confirmation of promises
Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which you affirm for yourself the faith into which you have been baptised 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.
You may have been going to church for a while and want to make a more definite commitment in terms of your Christian faith. Or you may want to explore the meaning of the promises made by you or on behalf of you when you were baptised and more specifically, the promises God made to you!
What happens if you want to be confirmed?
With our Rector or OLM, you will have a number of meetings. This is where you can ask questions and they will help you explore the Christian faith. These sessions are informal and all designed to help and guide you.
The confirmation service is normally led by one of our bishops. It’s a solemn but also a joyful occasion and we like to follow it with a festive meal for everyone!
There is a lot of information about confirmation on the web. Like:
