Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which you affirm for yourself the faith into which you have been baptized and your intention to live a life of committed discipleship. It is the rite by which we express a mature commitment to Christ and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a Bishop.

The requirements of those to be confirmed are that they have been baptized, are sufficiently instructed in the Christian faith, are penitent for their sins and are ready to affirm their confession of Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.
