It is time to start the preparations for confirmations in September 2015.
This course is intended to:
– those who are baptized but not yet confirmed
– those who attend the Lutheran confirmation school but wish to be confirmed by an Anglican Bishop NOTE: In this case it might not be necessary for you to attend all the gathering but only those which would give an adequate introduction to the Anglican / Episcopal churches.
– those who hope to be received in to the communion of the Church of England (those who are ‘member’ of another Christian denomination and would like to ‘become’ Anglican) PLEASE NOTE: in this case, it is more to do with your own personal identity than with the regulations of the Church. We welcome people from all the Churches and denominations to participate fully in the life of our community, including the Eucharist, as they are. But there might be reasons why you would like to be received into the Church of England formally.  (In this case perhaps the Pilgrim course would be more suitable for you?)
Those willing to attend are asked to come and sign-up
On Saturday, 24th January at 10 a.m.
