Deanery Confirmation Service 11th October 2016.

What is Confirmation?

Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which you affirm for yourself the faith into which you have been baptized and your intention to live a life of committed discipleship. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands by the confirming bishop. The Church also asks God to give you power through the Holy Spirit to enable you to live in the way of Jesus.

Preparation will begin early in September and is available to anyone 11 years or over – yes adults too!

Interested? Contact Rev  Andy or churchwardens.
