Confirmation

Confirmation is the ministry by which, through prayer and with the laying on of hands by the Bishop, the Holy Spirit is invited and received to complete what began in Baptism and to give strength for the adult Christian life.

Each person, at their Confirmation, takes on the promises made for them at Baptism to reject evil and to turn to Christ as Saviour and Lord. It is a public declaration of faith.

Confirmation, in the Church of England, is also seen as a sign of full membership of the church.

Confirmation services in the Horsham Deanery are held every year.

Do contact the church office if you are considering Confirmation.
