Welcoming a new baby into a family and the community is such a joy - why not honour this special time with a naming ceremony! It is an opportunity to formally celebrate the arrival and naming of your child and can be created any way you wish. Some families choose to have a celebrant speak of the significance and meaning of the name chosen, some choose readings/poems, undertake a ritual or blessing and others play a piece of music to represent this special time. The child’s parents, family or friends can pledge their love and commitment to your child. Godparents, mentors or supporting adults can be identified to support and commit to your child as he or she grows.
