Confirmation Classes

Confirmation is the service in which you affirm the promises that your Godparents made for you at your Christening (Baptism). A Bishop always takes this service and confirms you.  If you are interested in being confirmed, you’ll need to attend a course of preparation. We run two courses for adults in the Parish: 'Just Explore' and 'Turning to Christ'. If you are interested in being confirmed please the Rector.


Readers are lay people in the Church of England, from all walks of life, who are called by God, theologically trained and licensed by the Church to preach, teach, lead worship and assist in pastoral, evangelistic and liturgical work. Read more....
