Confirmation

Confirmation services, when candidates for Confirmation renew their Baptismal vows before a Bishop, are held locally each year at one of the larger churches in Croydon. The venue is occasionally at St Matthew's. 

Candidates should be aged 11 years or over.

By way of preparation for Confirmation, candidates are instructed in basic Christian doctrine; the use of scripture; and the practice of public worship and private prayer. Their instruction also includes the implications of Christian belief for personal behaviour and morality.

Enquiries from possible candidates or on their behalf should be made to the vicar or assistant priest - see this page for contact details.
