Confirmation

Confirmations happen once a year, usually in the early autumn –  the exact date is determined by the availibility of the bishop. In our parish, the Confirmation Eucharist is the point at which most candidates first receive holy communion (although some will have already been prepared for holy communion elsewhere). Confirmation is an important statement of public commitment to the Christian faith, and like baptism is a sacrament – a sign of God’s grace.

Confirmation is open both adults and to young people who are Year 6 upwards at the time of the service. Separate courses for adults and young people are run in the preceding summer term – candidates usually have to sign up by the middle to end of April. For further information, consult frequently asked questions. The clergy are happy to discuss confirmation with you, either at the Parish Office – on 020 7221 3548 – or in church.

The 2016 Confirmation Eucharist is on Sunday 18 September. Click here for the Application form.
