Confirmation is the opportunity to profess for ourselves the faith in which we were baptised, and to receive the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. It involves receiving the laying-on of hands and anointing with oil by the bishop, and it usually takes place within a celebration of the Eucharist.

Confirmation is an act of Christian commitment and therefore I would expect to meet with candidates over a period of time (usually 5 or 6 weekly sessions) in order to prepare them. 

If you would like to prepare for Confirmation please contact me, The Revd Rachel Hawes, the Associate Rector, (m: 07768875590, email:
