Confirmation is for those who have been baptised and want to publicly ‘confirm’ their faith and receive the laying on of hands by the bishop.
The journey to confirmation is a very important time for each (usually teenaged) person involved and we aim to support parishes and their candidates as much as possible.
To help with preparation there is a confirmation handbook available to parishes as well as advice and samples of other resources for delivering the course. We can also work with you to help you deliver a course and perhaps form partnerships with other parishes for confirmations.
Usually the Big Diocesan Youth Weekend, in Spring each year, is a big part of the preparation for many churches.
Please contact Josh Thornbury: firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information about confirmation.
