Confirmation

Our confirmation is an exciting stage of the Christian journey.  It is a special service, celebrated by the bishop, in which we affirm for ourselves the promises that were made on our behalf at our baptism.

In being confirmed we renew our commitment to Christ and recieve the Holy Spirit.  It is our confirmation that enables us to receive Holy Communion, in which Christ feeds and sustains us with the gift of his body and blood, made present for us upon the altar, under the appearance of bread and wine.  Candidates for confirmation are usually given a brief period of teaching (known as confirmation classes) so that they may be better prepared for their Christian discipleship.
