To be confirmed?

ConfirmationAs we prepare for our Joint Confirmation Service on 29 June, Phil Cansdale writes to encourage us to conisder being confirmed.

Confirmation is for anybody who is a committed Christian and wants to take the ‘next step’ in becoming a fully active member of the church.

If you were baptised as a child, confirmation offers an opportunity to make your own public declaration of faith in Christ.  You may, however, have been baptised as an adult and be wishing to underline your commitment to the family of God.

Alternatively, you may be a full member of another branch of the Christian Church and be wishing to play a full part in the Anglican Church.

Getting Ready?

There are a number of ways to prepare to get confirmed. You might have been one of the many people doing the ALPHA course, or the Friday morning Y Course – which both seek to build lasting and true foundations as to what it means to follow Jesus.

You might already be part of a small group, and want to spend a couple of sessions looking at what it means to be confirmed and to take your commitment to God a step further.

If you’re a young person you might be in Matt and Jenny’s “Life Group” on Tuesday nights, and out of that spend a bit more time looking at what it means to belong to the church and the follow Jesus. Whichever of these options, the important thing is that at the end of the preparation you are in a place where you are able to publicly commit yourself to living for God and serving in His church.
