Children Communion before Confirmation

“In a recent PCC meeting, after much debate and discussion, it was decided to work towards allowing children, after adequate preparation. to take communion before confirmation, A working party will now prepare a way forward which will be submit to the PCC and then to the Bishop before we can be granted permission to do this. This is a practice that happens in 40% of the churches within the diocese. Where it has happened there has been no noticeable drop in the numbers coming for confirmation. Confirmation continues to be an important rite of passage where the emphasis is on declaring your personal faith in Jesus Christ and claiming the baptism promises made on your behalf by parents and godparents for your own. If you would like to talk to me about this, please feel free to do so.”
