  • Christening and naming ceremonies - Huggies
    ceremony but it is also a very legitimate reason to hold a party to celebrate the arrival of your baby What does a christening involve A christening is a Christian blessing which usually involves baptism And baptism refers to a ritual where a person in this case a baby is initiated into the Church congregation when water is sprinkled or poured over the head of a baby or in some cases when the baby is immersed in water for a second or two Baptism usually represents the cleansing of original sin from the baby and the initiation of the baby into the first of various sacraments of the church in which they are christened Parents and godparents accept responsibility on the baby s behalf for the child s acceptance of the beliefs of the Church Baptism has been used in most Christian christening ceremonies inspired by Jesus own baptism in the River Jordan at the hands of John the Baptist However several Christian groups eg Quakers don t practice baptism in a christening Baptism of adults is a very old ritual that has existed in various forms in such religions as Judaism for many centuries While it became part of Christian ritual in the very early days of the church other religious groups in the first and second century that used baptism included Gnostic spiritualists rabbinic Jews and Essene sectarians However the first mention of infant baptism comes from the early Christian writer Tertullian circa 200AD so most scholars believe infant Christenings started during the second century AD In some churches a blessing ceremony is held for a new baby but another ceremony similar to a christening occurs when a child is old enough to speak for themselves In most cases a male and female godparent is chosen by the parents It s quite an honour to be asked to be a godparent and it s a role that carries differing levels of responsibility depending on the church Generally that person would be a practicing member of the church into which the child is christened In many cases the Church will require parents and also sometimes godparents to receive some instructions before the ceremony You might be required to have a personal session with the priest or pastor or perhaps to attend one or several organised classes Do check with the church as soon as possible what is required beforehand When to hold a christening The actual time and date of the service is usually dictated by the availability of your church and you ll also want to check the availability of your chosen godparents As to the age of your baby that really depends on the parents and to some extent the requirements of your church Forty years ago it was very common to hold a christening just a couple of weeks after a baby was born However there is a lot more variety in the age of children being christened these days Some families will even hold a
