Confirmation

Confirmation in the Church of England is the moment when the promises made for someone at baptism are taken on by themselves, and with the laying on of hands the bishop prays for them to receive the Holy Spirit.

Practically it is the gateway to entry into the church as an adult and the point at which someone starts to receive the bread and wine at Holy Communion.

Confirmations of people at All Saints’ happen once a year, with the other churches in the deanery, and occur at one of the churches in the deanery.
