Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which we affirm for ourselves the faith into which we have been baptised. You may have recently had your child baptised and made promises for that child to help them grow in faith in Christ. If you have not been confrmed this might be a good time to make those promises for yourself.
In Confirmation God assures us of his love and gives to us the gifts of the Holy Spirit to strengthen us to do his will, and we answer Jesus’ call to discipleship and promise to follow him. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands by the confirming bishop.
We run a short course for people seeking to be confirmed which would also be appropriate for adults seeking baptism. For people with very little knowledge of the faith attending a nurture course such as Alpha or The Pilgrim course might be helpful.
Each year the bishop comes to Bromley to confirm people.
This year Bishop James is coming to confirm people at Bromley Parish Church on Sunday 19th June at our 10.30 service. We have been running confirmation groups leading up to this from Tuesday 29th April using the book Faith Confirmed by Peter Jackson and Chris Wright. We are delighted to be welcoming confirmation candidates from St Mark's Bromley
