Confirmation services

Information about forthcoming confirmation services across the Diocese.

Find out more about exploring confirmation with the Church of England.

If you wish to enquire about presenting candidates at any of these confirmation services please contact the named member of clergy. If you have some candidates for confirmation and are considering organising a service please contact your area bishop’s office to make arrangements. Of course, do let your local colleagues know of any forthcoming date at an early opportunity in case they wish to present candidates.

Confirmations take place each year in Norwich Cathedral on Easter Eve and in May and November. To present candidates you need to complete the “Cathedral” form below and send to the Bishop’s Chaplain (details below).

Confirmations across the diocese: Every time a confirmation takes place, the presiding bishop must take away a Confirmations Returns Form (often referred to as the “Blue Form”). It is really important that we maintain accurate records of confirmations which take place. These can be downloaded below.
