We support the admission of children to Holy Communion prior to confirmation

Bishop Paul and the Diocese of Liverpool support the move under canon law to admit children to Holy Communion before they are confirmed. This is an important step in recognising the child’s place within the whole people of God and gives parishes the opportunity to consider the nurturing of children’s faith in a new and exciting way.

Is this something your church has considered? We would love to see more of our parishes offering admission to communion prior to a child or young person being confirmed.
