Confirmation

Confirmations happen once a year, usually in the early autumn –  the exact date is determined by St Paul’s Cathedral, but is usually at 5.00 pm on the first Saturday in November. 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 September and October – candidates usually have to sign up by the end of August or beginning of September. 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 2018 Confirmation Eucharist is at 5.00 pm on Saturday 3 November at St Paul’s Cathedral.
