Confirmation is a strong tradition in Denmark, and although not so common in Australia, many children with Danish affiliation choose to be confirmed in the Danish Church.
As a starting point, we try to do it in Danish, but if needed, the teaching is in English.
Next year’s class starts in September – and it is now you have to enroll your child!
The deadline for registration is August 15th!
First class will be:
Brisbane: Sunday the 25th of August
The classes will be in connection with the service on Sunday, August 25th and December 14th. Furthermore 1 monthly Skype meeting / teaching with the priest as well as a “Confirmand Weekend” from February 21st to February 23rd.
Melbourne: Sunday the 8th of September
The classes will be in connection with the service. Furthermore 1 monthly Skype meeting / teaching with the priest, as well as a “Confirmand Weekend” from February 21st to February 23rd.

Other places in Australia: The classes will be via Skype with the Brisbane students. The confirmation will take place in either Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne. Which ever fits you best.
