Baptisms & Blessings

We offer two different services, christening or blessing (naming ceremony) and there are a few very important differences.

A christening (or baptism) is a service where the parents and Godparents make promises and commitments to God on behalf of the child, water is sprinkled on the child’s head and a candle given. You will also get a certificate of baptism and each Godparent will receive a Godparent card too.

A blessing or naming is ceremony is a service where the parents make promises to each other and to their child. The child will have sponsors and not Godparents. You will be given a certificate of blessing and the sponsors will receive a card too.

We also accommodate adult christenings too.
