WHAT IS CONFIRMATION?

Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which the participation in the life of God's people inaugurated at baptism is confirmed by the Bishop by the laying on of hands, and in which those who have been baptised affirm for themselves the faith into which they have been baptised and their intention to live a life of responsible and committed discipleship. Through prayer and the laying on of hands by the confirming Bishop, the Church also asks God to give them power through the Holy Spirit to enable them to live in this way.

MAKING ARRANGEMENTS

We normally hold a confirmation service once a year.

We work closely with Heyhouses CofE Primary School to offer confirmation to children at the school (typically in Year 6), and also to any adult members of our congregation wishing to be confirmed.

If you wish to be confirmed but do not fall within the above categories, the first step is the contact the Vicar.
