Admission to Holy Communionfirst comnmunion

We run preparation classes for children aged 8–11 to be admitted to Holy Communion  every year. At Pentecost (which usually falls in May), the group take their first communion at a memorable service

Admission dates for 2024

First Communion is on Sunday 19 May with the course starting on Wednesday 17 April 5.00–6.00pm running for 5 weeks.



Admission to First Communion is not the same as Confirmation, because the teaching focuses primarily on the significance of communion, rather than on other aspects of the Christian faith. Children who take communion at an early age are encouraged to think about being confirmed later, as teenagers or young adults. 

Confirmation preparation takes place in the autumn, in anticipation of a service taken by the Bishop during November/December. There is no need to commit to confirmation until you are ready for it. If you simply want to brush up on your faith please feel free to join.
