'A moment of joy and blessing' - confirmations at Westbury Park

First published 5th November 2021

On Sunday 24 October, the Rt Revd Vivienne Faull, Bishop of Bristol, confirmed two people at a service held at St Albans Westbury Park.

"It was my privilege to jointly lead the confirmation service for Grace and Nicholas at The Church in Westbury Park, a moment of joy and blessing on their journeys of faith in the company of their families, friends and the wider church community. Let's thank God for them as we share the good news of God at work in their lives,” said Revd Patrick Stonehewer, minister in the Bristol and South Gloucestershire Methodist Circuit.

During confirmation, a person confirms the promises they made when they were baptised (or that were made for them if they were baptised as a baby). The bishop lays hands on the person’s head, and asks God’s Holy Spirit to dwell in their hearts, equipping them to journey deeper into the way of Jesus Christ.

The diocese’s next confirmation service will be on Sunday 24 October at Westbury Park Church.
