A christening is just the beginning of an exciting journey of faith. In choosing to have a child christened, parents are saying that their child is precious to them and precious to God. By simply being at the service you are supporting their decision to have their child baptized.
At the christening the parents and godparents will promise to support their child, talk to them about the big questions in life, pray for them and show them how to make good choices in life. They will also promise to help them learn about the Christian faith.
Everyone at the service will also be invited to promise to continue supporting the child on their journey of faith.
