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.”
(From the Church of England Website, https://www.churchofengland.org/our-faith/confirmation/what-is-confirmation.aspx ) .
This very special service, in 2017, will take place on Saturday 25th March at 3.30pm.
We usually begin our confirmation classes in January on a weekly – bi-weekly basis. There will be more information in our parish newsletter and on this site. There is also an opportunity to be baptised within this service.
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 Bishop Robert Innes, the Diocese Bishop of Europe. It will include Holy Communion.
It will be held at Heilige Geest Kerk, the home of All Saints Anglican Church.
For more information do please contact us or Holy Trinity Utrecht.
