Communion before Confirmation Policy

We welcome children and other baptised Christians to receive communion in our church. This policy outlines our welcome to those who wish to receive communion before confirmation.

We affirm that anyone who has been baptised in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit should be accepted as fully initiated into the family of Christ, and be included into our community regardless of gender, age, sexuality, race, social standing, physical or mental disability or health. Our welcome should echo that of the welcome in our baptism service: “We welcome you into the fellowship of faith; we are children of the same heavenly Father; we welcome you.” We also recognise the importance of communion as part of an active Christian life. It is our responsibility to include anyone who has been baptised into our Eucharistic community and help sustain them on their Christian journey.
