Confirmation Bishop John Perumbalath has agreed to come to Brentwood on January 9th 2022, to conduct a service of confirmation at 11.15am. The term ‘confirmation’ relates to the fact that many of us were baptised (christened) as infants or very young children, unable to make a decision about faith for ourselves. Confirmation is the confirming of that decision made by our parents: that we have thought about faith and wish to make those same promises to follow Christ and play a part in His church as grown people. You can read more about confirmation on the Church of England website here. Confirmation is possible for anyone who is old enough to know something of what that decision entails – normally that means that anyone from Year 6 to age 106 can be confirmed! There will be preparation sessions – normally six, each about an hour long – beginning in October and, since they build on understanding it is important to attend all the sessions, although we can usually manage one or two catch-up times if someone really has to miss a ‘class’. We encourage anyone to consider taking this step and becoming a Communicant member of the Church, able to share fully in the service of Holy Communion and willing to participate in the whole life of the Body of Christ in this place.
Local Faith Schools St George’s has close links to the local faith schools and we are able to validate Supplementary Information Forms (SIFs) required by them as part of the admissions process. Applications run on a points system and priority will be given to parents and children who regularly attend church. The priority list for St Thomas of Canterbury School is displayed in our church porch and states that those who have attended St George’s twice a month for the past 2 years will be considered first. Other local C of E schools follow a similar criterion and also ask questions about the contribution the family make to church life, e.g. helping with Sunday School and fundraising events. We keep an informal register of attendees each week as we see lots of different faces and would never be able to remember everyone. St George’s has always welcomed parents and children through its doors, and we hope you will enjoy being part of our church family regardless of school applications. Like any family or friendship, the more you put in, the more you get out of it – come and worship with us and help us keep St George’s as a thriving hub of our community.
