“Your baptism makes you a member of Christ,
and brings you into the family of God.
Now your home is in the Christian community,
and you will always have a place in it.”
Words, taken from a service of confirmation, which affirm that baptism is the entry into full membership of the church. Whether you have been baptised as a child or an adult, this involves the call to belong to Christ and his community, the church. There are many ways in which we live and express our faith. There are different ways of praying, of getting to know Christ and his teachings better, of serving God and the community in which we live and work. In seeking confirmation, we express our desire and commitment to take on a responsible role in the local and wider church.
If you are interested in finding out more about confirmation and how to take this next step in your faith, please contact the minister (firstname.lastname@example.org).
