|Life Events - Confirmation|
|Tuesday, 14 September 2010 19:10|
People who have been baptised may be confirmed provided they are old enough to renew for themselves the promises made for them at their baptism by their parents and godparents.
(If you have not already been baptised see the baptism section (baptism is not only for babies).
The Bishop presides and he will use the opportunity of the sermon to talk to the candidates about the responsibilities of adult Christian life and then the candidates will make their public profession of faith. Any unbaptised candidates are then baptised and the Bishop prays that the Holy Spirit will come upon those who are to be confirmed. The candidates kneel before the Bishop, who lays his hands on the head of each saying "Confirm O Lord your servant with your Holy Spirit"

Anyone wishing to be confirmed must be a regular attender.
Please contact the Rev'd Philip Ashdown 01642 611603 if you wish to be confirmed, or would like further information.
