In the Early Church those who were entering the Christian faith were baptised and confirmed at the same service. After a time, the Church in the West separated baptism and confirmation except in the case of adults. Infants are normally baptised and the promises made on their behalf by parents and godparents who promise that they will teach them the Christian faith and when old enough encourage them to make a personal commitment and be confirmed by the bishop.   Do you turn to Christ?   I turn to Christ   Do you repent of your sins?   I repent of my sins   Do you renounce evil?   I renounce evil   Do you believe in God the Father, the Creator of all?   I believe and trust in God the Father   Do you believe in his Son, Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world?   I believe and trust in God the Son   Do you believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life?   I believe and trust in God the Holy Spirit The Bishop will then baptize any candidates for baptism. He will then say a prayer invoking the Holy Spirit to come upon those who are to be confirmed. Then he lays his hands on each candidate (and he may also anoint each one with holy oil) and says, ‘God has called you by name and made you his own’. Then he prays: Confirm, Lord your servant with your heavenly grace, and anoint him/her with your Holy Spirit; empower him/her for your service and keep him/her in eternal life.  Amen. The service continues and the candidates receive Holy Communion. To discuss a confirmation please visit St Hilary's church on Monday evenings between 6pm and 7pm (except bank holidays and during August)
