For it is only right for me to feel this way about you all, because I have you in my heart, since both in my imprisonment and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers of grace with me.
AFFIRMING YOUR FAITH

Confirmation is a sacrament, ritual or rite of passage. The word means strengthening or deepening one's relationship with God. Confirmation enables a baptised person to confirm the promises made at baptism. It is also a sign of full membership to the Christian community.
In Christian confirmation, a baptised person believes that he or she is receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit.
A bishop usually conducts the service with the sacrament of confirmation being conferred through the laying on of hands.
Confirmation can be held at any age but participants are normally old enough to understand the significance of their promises.
Contact us and arrange to speak to the vicar. We will then invite you to a few meetings to help you get ready for the service. This is a good way to explore your faith with others who are also thinking about confirmation and is a safe place to ask any questions you have about God, Jesus and the journey of faith.
These are some common questions about confirmation, which we can help to answer and there is also a link below where you can find out more about Anglican confirmation.
