Every year in Billesley Ward a Confirmation Service takes place at one of three churches,
Holy Cross Billesley,
Christ Church Yardley Wood or Immanuel, Highters Heath. This service also takes place
at different times of the year and at different churches all around the country within
the Church of England.
So what is Confirmation?
Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which you affirm for yourself
the faith into which you have been baptized and your intention to live a life of
committed discipleship. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying
on of hands by the confirming bishop. The Church also asks God to give you power
through the Holy Spirit to enable you to live in the way of Jesus.
If you would like to know more then call in for a chat at the Immanuel Church during
