Confirmation


If you are interested in being confirmed, talk to your local vicar who will be delighted to explain all that's involved. The national Church of England website also has some useful information.

Confirmation services take place throughout the year across the Diocese of Ely. 

Clergy wishing to present candidates for confirmation at a service in the cathedral should book through the Ely Cathedral website.

Confirmation services also take place at churches across the diocese. Please contact the Bishop's Senior Chaplain for more information or see the schedule below.
