St Michael & St Mary Magdalene

Young People's Communion and Confirmation

First Communion

Children are able to take Holy Communion when in Year 3 or above. They will need to come to a 'Communion before Confirmation' morning where we will have some fun exploring the meaning of Church and Holy Communion with them. Please keep an eye out in the notices to see when the next 'Communion before Confirmation' will be.

The next Communion before Confirmation morning will take place on Saturday 30th March, 9:30am-1pm at St Peter's, Cranbourne. Children will then be invited to receive their first Holy Communion on Sunday 31st March (Mothering Sunday). To register your child for this, please fill in a form and return to the Parish Office.

Communion before Confirmation Form


Young people can be confirmed in the Church of England from the age of 13. In preparation for this there will be a short course where we will explore the Christian faith together. In our parish, Confirmation services usually take place in October.
