Confirmation

 

 

Please ask us about the next Swindon Deanery Confirmation for 2019/2020

 

 

 

Confirmation is a special church service in which a person confirms the promises that were made when they were baptized.  If you were baptized 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.  Your friends and family as well as the local Christian community will be there to promise to support and pray for you. 

The local bishop will lay their hands on your head and ask God’s Holy Spirit to give you the strength and commitment to live God’s way for the rest of your life.

The key verse for confirmation is 2 Timothy1:6 “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.”

 

Candidates; children from secondary school age, and adults who would like to consider confirmation could you please notify Revd Tudor Roberts.
