Rochester Cathedral has a lively and growing congregation and we are delighted to baptise those with a significant connection to this cathedral or who are regular worshippers here


Confirmation of adults and young people (Year 7 upwards) usually takes place at the Vigil Eucharist on Easter Day at 5.30am.   Courses of preparation for adults and young people are held during Lent. Adults who have not previously been baptised may be prepared for baptism and confirmation.
