During the pandemic we were unable to hold a Confirmation service as Bishop Robert (Diocese in Europe) was unable to travel. We are pleased now to inform you that we will be starting Confirmation preparation classes next year (exact dates to be advised) and the service will take place later in the year.
Confirmation is a special church service in which a person confirms the promises that were made when they were baptised. If you were baptised at a christening when you were a child, your parents and godparents made these promises on your behalf. As a young person or adult, you may be ready to affirm these promises for yourself and commit your life to following Jesus Christ. At a confirmation service, you make these promises for yourself. Your friends and family as well as St Andrew’s community will be there to promise to support and pray for you.
During the Confirmation preparation course we encourage people to grow in their Christian faith through prayer, reflection, studying the Bible, coming to church and living out your faith in our community.
If you are over 12 years of age and wish to participate in the preparation classes please contact the church office email@example.com to express your interest. Once we have an idea of numbers we can start planning the dates with more certainty.
