each year which is conducted by the Bishop. The timing of the confirmation
groups is in relation to the date of the confirmation service.
Please contact the Rector, if you would like
to join a confirmation group.
These groups are also open to those who simply want to explore
the spiritual life without further commitment and to those who
would like a refresher course in the Christian faith.
Confirmation groups are run for both adults and young people.
