This Sunday, 15 March, St Luke’s will be holding a confirmation service – and we’re excited to be welcoming Richard Chartres, the Bishop of London, to preside over this special evening event.
Confirmation is a ceremony that marks the point in the Christian journey when you affirm for yourself the faith into which you were baptised as a child, and your intention to live a life of Christian discipleship. People are often confirmed in their teens, but adults get confirmed too.
At the service, the St Luke’s candidates will make their declaration in front of the congregation, and their decision will be affirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands by the Bishop. The church will pray for the Holy Spirit to help the candidates live in the way of Jesus, and promise to support and pray for them.
We’re honoured to have the Rt Revd & Rt Hon Richard Chartres with us once again to conduct the ceremony. You’re warmly invited to join us for this special service at 6.30pm.
