Confirmation can be an important part of a lifetime journey of faith as a follower of Jesus Christ.
Confirmation is a special church service in which a person confirms the promises that were made when they were baptised. If you were baptised at a christening when you were a child, your parents and godparents made these promises on your behalf. As a young person or adult, you may be ready to affirm these promises for yourself and commit your life to following Jesus Christ. At a confirmation service, you make these promises for yourself. Your friends and family as well as the local Christian community will be there to promise to support and pray for you.
We hope to be able to announce soon a date for the 2024 deanery confirmation service. In the meantime, there is a diocesan service at Canterbury Cathedral on 18 November 2023. If you are interested in being confirmed, please speak to one of our clergy.
