First Communion

Children in Year 5 and upwards are now able to be prepared to receive their First Communion prior to Confirmation, providing this is the right move for the family in question and adequate preparation is offered. Once names have been submitted we ask the Bishop of Blackburn for his permission. Since this was approved by the Church of England’s General Synod in 2006, it has become more wide-spread in the Church of England and is one of the ways we take seriously the spiritual journey and growth of our young people. Adults who are being prepared for Confirmation may also start to receive Holy Communion before the Confirmation itself.
