Confirmation is the second part of the rite of baptism. In it a Bishop lays his hands on the head of the candidates and invokes the Holy Spirit to strengthen them in their journey of faith.

There is a yearly University Confirmation service held in one of the college chapels. At this service candidates from several colleges are presented by their college clergy. This is preceded by a period of preparation – usually in the form of a series of discussion meetings based on reading about the Christian faith.
