Admission to Communion
Our Admission Before Confirmation course for children in Year 3 and above.
Guidelines for the admission of children to Holy Communion.
Children to be admitted must be baptised and provide proof of baptism or be willing to be baptised at the admission service. They must be in Year 3 or above. The parent(s)/guardian(s) of the children must agree to their children being admitted and must themselves attend the course of preparation alongside their children. The preparation course will be 5 sessions. The first session is an information and preparation session intended both for those families whose children have decided to take the course, and for those who would like to know more.
We usually hold an information session in December, the course runs through January with the Admission Service in February.
Unfortunately, we have had to take the difficult decision to postpone the 2021 course. With the change to Tier 4, the uncertainty about restrictions in January and the very real possibility that attendance may be affected by illness/ quarantining we feel that the provision and benefit of the course to our young parishioners would be disrupted in too detrimental a fashion and that we would better serve our youth by delaying until the course can be better run, hopefully, later in 2021.
