Confirmation is a special ceremony in which we become a full member of Church of England. Once you are confirmed by the Bishop, you are invited to receive the Sacrament on regular basis during the Mass.
During the Confirmation Service, the Bishop uses Holy Oil to make a Sign of the Cross on each candidate’s forehead and lays his hands on each candidate’s head, prays for the Holy Spirit to come down upon him or her.
Being confirmed means that the candidate is no longer a child in faith any more,
rather it is a time to give up childish way (When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I gave up childish ways-1 Cor. 13:11) and be a fully grown-up. So, before the confirmation we usually run Confirmation Classes and during this course each candidate learns many things about Christian faith and our tradition (as the Church of England receives).
However, if the candidates are too young to understand these, we recommend them to wait until they become certain age. Adult candidates usually have their baptism and confirmation on the same day by Bishop.
