The next formal step in Christian discipleship after baptism is confirmation.

At confirmation a bishop lays his or her hands on your head and prays for the gift of the Holy Spirit. Confirmation marks your appropriation of the promises made on your behalf at your baptism (if you were baptized as a child), and confers full adult membership in the Church, including admission to Holy Communion. If you were not baptized as a child, baptism and confirmation are usually administered together.


As a mark of conscious appropriation of the faith, confirmation is preceded by a period of instruction on the basics of Christian belief, either individually or in a group. There are plenty of opportunities in this process to ask questions.

More information on confirmation can be found in this leaflet:


If you are interested in being confirmed, or would like to ask any questions, please contact Fr John, Fr Daniel, or Fr Andrew.
