Confirmation is a call to live by God's Spirit. It is conferred at a later age having clear connotations of Christian maturity.
The candidates are acknowledging the adult commitment to faith, literally ‘confirming' the promises made on their behalf at baptism.
Young people should be 14+ to enter the programme which usually begins in the Autumn and, if the candidate feels ready, confirmation will be during Eastertide the following year. There will usually be a residential retreat during that period.
