All may, none must, some should…
Within the Anglican Church, confession and absolution is usually seen as part of corporate worship, particularly at the Eucharist. This involves a call to repentance by the priest, a period of silent prayer and reflection, a form of confession said together by all present and then the pronouncement of God’s forgiveness by the priest accompanied by the sign of the cross.
However, private confession is also practiced in the Anglican Church. Many people still engage in a discipline of making their confession before major Feasts or more generally throughout the year.
If you have never made your confession privately, and would like to talk through what this involves, or you would like an appointment to make your confession please be in touch with Fr. Stephen (please choose Confession from the list).
