Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which adults or children decide to affirm for themselves the faith into which they were baptised. This is an important decision, so you may wish to take this opportunity to discuss with us whether you feel ready at this stage to take this significant step.
This year the Rt Rev'd Dr Graham Tomlin, Bishop of Kensington confirmed 17 children and adult candidates from St Mary Abbots and St Phillips. The picture about shows the 2022 candidates after the service.
The preparation sessions are led by Mother Emma, Father Christopher and the Revd Pippa Turner from St Philips Earls Court Road and are informal. The group discusses various areas of worship and religion, taking you on a journey to draw closer to God and an understanding of your own faith. A sample of this years course, and the topics covered, can be found below.
Candidates are commissioned around three months before the service. Our next confirmation which will be held on 25th May 2023.
