We held a wonderful confirmation service on 30th April 2017 at St Peter’s Church, Lugwardine where 8 young people were confirmed by Bishop Richard.


What is confirmation?

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. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands by the confirming bishop. The Church also asks God to give you power through the Holy Spirit to enable you to live in the way of Jesus.


We hope to hold another junior confirmation class in the Bartestree Cross Group of Churches in late Spring 2018.
