Make promises and commitments to nurture and support your child in life
Naming Ceremonies gives you the chance to welcome your child with love and share this with your family and friends. They are an alternative to Church Christenings and available to anyone of any denominational or non-denominational religion or culture.
These ceremonies can also be used to celebrate the arrival of adoptive and step children becoming part of a new family.
Each ceremony is unique and personally written for you. You may choose to have poems, readings, music, hymns and prayers. If you wish you can write your own promises and vows to your child.
You can choose a Godparent (or Supporting / Guiding adult) if you prefer. These people will promise to take a special interest in the future of your child. They can also be a there as a friend and source of advice for your child outside of their family.
Godparents can write their own personal and meaningful promises to the child.
