Melbourne Parish Church

In the heart of the Community

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.

Please contact the Rector or Curate for more information about confirmation at Melbourne.
