Chaplaincy Confirmation Service.
The Church of England states: “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.” Taken from the Church of England website.

This very special service, in 2019, will take place on Sunday 19th May, at 2.15pm.
The Confirmation Service is one for the entire chaplaincy – Amersfoort, Zwolle, Groningen, Utrecht. But we do welcome candidates from other Anglican churches, who would like to be confirmed at our service.
The Confirmation will be led by our Diocesan Bishop, the Bishop of Europe, Rt Revd Dr Robert Innes. Our service will include Holy Communion.
This year we are confirming seven candidates from Holy Trinity, All Saints, and other congregations.
The Service will be held here at the Singel Kerk, in Utrecht. Wittevrouwensingel 28, Utrecht.
Car Parking will be an issue, as it is very limited at and around the church. The stewards at the church recommend two nearby parking garages. These are Kruisstraat Parking, or at the Parking De Grifthoek
The service goes from 2:15pm to about 4pm and there will be a reception after the service in a hall next to the church and in the area outside between the church and hall. The church itself should be big enough, it seats around 200, but the reception area will be a bit tight, but with lovely weather, it will be nice to be outside!
