Find our recommendations of books and other resources to guide you and your young people through the confirmation process.
Many young people don't know much about confirmation. Some want to find out about it, do it because their friends are doing it, or go to preparation because they get free cake. Others haven't got a clue why they should even consider it.
As a youth team we believe that confirmation - done well with great preparation and follow up - can be a brilliant opportunity for young people to explore, own, share and live their faith.
We need to think about why we're confirming young people, how we're preparing them and supporting them following confirmation. Below we hope you find some helpful information and resources to help you ensure that confirmation in your churches is all that it can be.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you've got questions about confirmation, or if you'd like support to set up a new group to support young people pre or post confirmation.
