Confirmation

Congratulations on wanting to explore confirmation with the Church of England. Confirmation can be an important part of a lifetime journey of faith as a follower of Jesus Christ.

During the service of Confirmation, the Bishop and the church asks God to give you power through the Holy Spirit to live as a follower of Jesus Christ. 

Before the service, you will spend time thinking about your faith as you prepare to affirm your baptismal vows and your intention to live your life as a disciple of Christ.

When you speak to your vicar about being confirmed they will usually 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, and the local vicar will be delighted to explain all that’s involved too.

If you are interested in taking this next step in your Christian faith then you can find more information and guidance about what's involved on the Church of England's website.
