Admission to Communion

navenorthTraditionally young people were only permitted to receive communion once they had been confirmed at around the age of 13. On the one hand we feel as a Parish that that is too soon to be confirmed (which should be a more adult affirmation of Christian belief), and on the other hand too late to be admitted to receive communion (which younger children can adequately understand). So, as many Church of England parishes now do, we prepare children in Key Stage 2 to be admitted to receive communion.

Preparation consists of 5 sessions, the first of which will be an information and preparation session intended both for families whose children have decided to take the course, and for those who would like to know more.

The 2018 programme has not yet been fixed. If you would like more information click here 2017 programme to see the most recent programme or contact Rev’d Laura Fawcett laurafawcett@parishofputney.com
