CONFIRMATION 2021

The Bishop of Edmonton, the Rt Revd Rob Wickham, will be joining us on Sunday 13 June (time TBC) to baptise, confirm and receive candidates into the communion of the Church of England.

 

Adults: If you are interested in taking the next step of your Christian journey, please complete this form by Sunday 31 January and we will be in touch with more details. Adult confirmation classes take place on Thursdays (8pm-9.30pm) during term-time starting on Thursday 25 February. Classes will initially be via Zoom; we hope to meet in person when circumstances allow. 

Parents of children in Year 5 and above: If your child would like to be confirmed, please complete this form by Sunday 21 February. We hope to provide more information about junior confirmation classes at that time.

A couple of months before the Confirmation we’ll send you another form which you will need to complete and return by 9th May.

 

Confirmation: Is it for me?

Frequently Asked Questions

 

1. I have never been baptised and would like to become part of the Church

Sign up for the confirmation course and you may be baptised and confirmed in June.

 

2. I was baptised in the Church of England but have not been confirmed.

Once again, sign up for the course leading to confirmation in June.

 

3. I was baptised as a child in another Christian Church (e.g. Methodist, United Reformed, Roman Catholic) but have not been confirmed.

As above, confirmation is the next step.

 

4. I have been baptised and have been confirmed or made a member in one of the historic free churches (Baptist, Methodist, United Reformed) or in a protestant Church overseas (Presbyterian, Lutheran, Reformed, etc) and now consider myself to be a member of the Church of England.

You are welcome to receive communion in the Church of England, but if your future lies with the Church of England you will want to be confirmed. If you went through Christian initiation in a church other than those listed please contact Fr Daniel to find out more.

 

5. I was baptised and chrismated in the Orthodox Church, or baptised and confirmed in the Roman Catholic Church but now consider myself to be a member of the Church of England.

You are welcome to receive communion in the Church of England, but you will want to consider being formally received into the Church of England. The confirmation course is a good preparation for this.

 

6. I was dedicated as a baby in a Baptist or other church, but not baptised.

Baptism and confirmation is the next step. Come along to the course.

 

7. I have been baptised and confirmed in the Church of England or another Anglican Church, but it was a long time ago.

You don’t need to do anything, but the confirmation course acts as a good refresher course. If you would like to reaffirm the promises made at your baptism and confirmation this can easily be arranged.
