Confirmation for Children and Adults
It has been the usual practice in the Church of England for children to be confirmed when they are in year 6. Confirmation means confirming the promises made at Baptism. Confirmation classes are normally held at St Aidan's Church from February until the service which is always on Ascension Day which is 40 days after Easter.
Adults wishing to be confirmed are taught separately from the children.
At St Mary's, Walton Church, if your child is 7 years old or above, and you would like them to be able to take communion without being confirmed, then please speak to the Rector.
For more information please contact the clergy, church wardens, or the Parish Office.
