Confirmations happen in the diocese for those people who have been baptised and now want to ‘confirm’ their faith in the church and have the bishop and people pray over them. It is a very important time for each (usually teenage) person involved and we want to help and support this process as much as we can.
To help with the planning for confirmation 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.
The Confirmation Weekend, in March each year, is a big part of the preparation for many churches as it looks at 3 areas of discipleship. Usually around 170 will attend this.
For the confirmation services themselves we will have staff there to help you plan and run the service and the celebration dessert lunch/supper afterwards.
We will provide a chocolate fountain and popcorn as well as ‘goody bags’ and a certificate for each candidate.
Bishop’s confirmation cards are also available free from our office.
Please contact Tim if you would like more information regarding your confirmation.
