Congratulations on wanting to explore confirmation with the Church of England in the Diocese of Durham. Confirmation can be an important part of a lifetime journey of faith as a follower of Jesus Christ.

The first step will be to talk to your local vicar.

When you speak to your vicar, they will usually invite you to a few meetings to help you get ready for the service. This is a good way to explore your faith with others who are also thinking about confirmation and is a safe place to ask any questions you have about God, Jesus and the journey of faith.

These are some common questions about confirmation, and the local vicar will be delighted to explain all that’s involved too.
