Confirmation preparation The Confirmation date for the United Benefice this year is 8 June (venue to be arranged) and the preparation groups begin on Thursday 20 March with the first session running from 4.00 - 5.00 pm. As some parents have indicated a 4.00 pm start is difficult, Amma Sue is attempting to arrange a later start time so please come to the first session at 4.00 pm on 20 March and we'll have more information about whether or not it is possible to change the time then (but not the day).
