Confirmation at the Temple Church

Almighty and everliving God,
who hast vouchsafed to regenerate all these thy servants
by water and the Holy Ghost,
and hast given them forgiveness of all their sins:
strengthen them, we beseech thee,
with the Holy Ghost the Comforter,
and daily increase in them thy manifold gifts of grace:
the spirit of wisdom and understanding;
the spirit of counsel and ghostly strength;
the spirit of knowledge and true godliness;
and fill them, O Lord, with the spirit of thy holy fear,
now and for ever. Amen.

If you are considering Confirmation, we will be very glad to hear from you.  A service Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Communion usually takes place on the final Sunday of the Legal Year in July.

  • Children are generally confirmed when they are 10 or older.
  • Candidates who have not been baptised are baptised at the start of the Confirmation Service.
