Why is a christening an ‘amazing journey’?

A christening is so much more than a ceremony in church – find out why here.

When a child is baptized with water, they are welcomed into the family of the church. It also marks the start of a lifetime of discovery about the Christian faith and how life-changing that can be.

It’s a journey of surprises, challenges and adventure. And through it all, God is always with us.
