Confirmation

Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which we affirm for ourselves the faith into which we have been baptised and our intention to live a life of committed discipleship. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands by the Bishop who leads the confirmation. At All Saints’ we prepare people for confirmation every year – from the age of 10 upwards. We normally have two groups who prepare – young people and adults, meeting for five classes at times to suit the candidates.

Confirmation services either take place at All Saints’ or at another church in Orpington.
