Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which we affirm for ourselves the faith into which we have been baptised. In Confirmation God assures us of his love and gives to us the gifts of the Holy Spirit to strengthen us to do his will, and we answer Jesus’ call to discipleship and promise to follow him for the rest of your lives. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands by the confirming bishop. For those not already admitted to communion, Confirmation is the step the church asks us to take to become full communicant members.
We offer preparation for Confirmation each Autumn in our parish. The next chance to prepare for Confirmation will be in Autumn 2017. Preparation begins on 8 October and the Confirmation Service will be at Southwark Cathedral on Saturday 25 November. If you'd like to join in, please get in touch.
