Text Box: There is nothing more beautiful than the public welcoming of a child into the community of Christianity.  This is exactly what a Christening/Baptism does.  It is a public confirmation of the desire of the child’s parents (communicated by the godparents on the child’s behalf) to become part of the newest member in the body of Christ.  It is also a time that the parents and godparents have the opportunity, in front of family and friends, to state the unconditional care, love, encouragement and support, that will continue to be provided to the child.
Christenings can be held in any location...indoors or out.  Some examples are homes, backyards, places of worship, catering halls, restaurants, hotels, parks, beaches, etc.

Text Box: Similar to a Christening/Baptism, a Baby Naming/Blessing Ceremony, celebrates and announces the safe arrival of your child.  It also allows your friends and relatives to greet, meet and express their best wishes and hopes for the future of the child.  The Naming/Blessing Ceremony has become an alternative to the traditional Christian ritual of Christenings/Baptisms designed for people who do not want to make the Christian commitment on behalf of their child.
As with the Baptism/Christening ceremonies, they can take place in any setting you like...indoors or out.  Some examples are homes, backyards, places of worship, catering halls, restaurants, hotels, park, beach, etc.
