Confirmation

 

 

What is Confirmation?

Many people are Baptised (Christened) as babies, when their parents and Godparents promise to bring their children up in the Christian faith. When you are old enough to know your own mind you confirm that you want to follow the Christian faith.

How old should you I be?

People can be confirmed at any age. Children are old enough to make these decisions for themselves (usually 10 or 11 years or older). Often older adults also think about confirmation.

What Happens?

At a Confirmation service, you will be asked to take for yourself the promises that were made for you at your Baptism. It is quite a special moment, a landmark in your journey of faith.

How will it affect my life?

After Confirmation you will come to worship as often as you can, receive Holy Communion and be an active follower of Jesus in whatever way God calls you.

How do I become confirmed?

There will be a Confirmation service at St Peter's Church, Bishop Norton, on March 17th 2019 at 11.00am. If you are interested in knowing more (whether you decide to be Confirmed on that date or not) do please speak to Revd Kathy (Rector).

Thinking about Confirmation?

Confirmation is about affirming publicly your Christian faith. Many people are Baptised (Christened) as babies, when their parents and Godparents make promises on their behalf. They promise to bring their children up in the Christian faith and encourage them to be followers of Jesus Christ. They also understand that God will help them in this task.

Once children are old enough to make decisions for themselves (usually 10 or 11 years or older) they may wish to be confirmed. Often older adults also think about confirmation. People can be confirmed at any age.

At a Confirmation service, you will be asked to take for yourself the promises that were made for you at your Baptism. It is quite a special moment, a landmark in your journey of faith. After Confirmation it is expected that you will come to worship as often as you can, receive Holy Communion and be an active follower of Jesus in whatever way God calls you. There are all sorts of ways in which we can use our different gifts and talents to serve God in the church, the community, and the wider world. Confirmation may be the first step towards doing this.
