A: 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 speak to Will to find out more.
Q: 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.
