Confirmation Classes and Service

We have set aside some dates for short Confirmation Classes which are all on a Wednesday at 7pm in the St James Room.

  • 22nd September
  • 6th October

There will be refreshments each session and it will be nice and informal and relaxed with plenty of space to ask questions.

The confirmation service will be on Sunday 21st November in the evening in Wath Parish Church.

About Confirmation

Confirmation is a special church service in which a person confirms the promises that were made when they were baptized. If you were baptized 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.

The local bishop will lay their hands on your head and ask God’s Holy Spirit to give you the strength and commitment to live God’s way for the rest of your life.

What happens during the service?

Confirmation usually takes place in a special service in your own church, at the cathedral or in another parish church, although it may take place during the main Sunday service at your own church. There will be hymns, readings and sometimes those being confirmed talk about their faith. After the Bishop has laid hands on each person’s head there will be special prayers – then there will be often some celebratory refreshments to follow!

There may be a rehearsal before the confirmation service so that you understand everything that happens in the service.
