Christenings

If you would like your child to be brought up as a Christian, then a christening is the first step.

However, these days, faith is not always the only motivation. A christening is also a great way to get the whole family together to celebrate your new arrival. Being a member of a church could also help your child get a place at the excellent local church school further down the line!  While some clergy are quite relaxed about the parents’ own church attendance, others will expect to see you and your child on a regular basis before and after the christening.

A christening calls for your child to believe in Jesus and to repent any sins. However, an increasing number of parents – and clergy themselves – question how a baby can possibly understand and, therefore, commit to this. As an alternative, your little one can be blessed and thanks can be given for his safe arrival into the world, without you making any promises on his behalf. A christening can then be held when your child is older and more able to understand what baptism involves.  If you are unsure what to do, talk to friends who have gone down either route and seek advice from your local church.

Once you have decided to have a christening, the first step is to talk to your local vicar. You will need to find out whether a special service needs to be arranged or whether the christening will be part of a main Sunday service. Some churches may ask few questions apart from which day you’d like the ceremony on and the names of the godparents, while others will want more details about your own faith, baptism and those of the godparents.

You might want a small tea reception of sandwiches and cakes after the service. However, if friends and family are coming from far afield, it might be a good idea to offer something more substantial.  Whatever the size of your Christening, Invitation House have a varied choice of christening invitations to suit a small gathering of friends and family or a larger party.

All our christening invitations are available with ribbon, we stock both satin and organza and although most customers choose either a pale pink or pale blue ribbon for a boy or girl, we do stock over 40 colours.  If you have having twins or groups of siblings christened then Lilac or Lemon ribbon are popular choices.

We can print your guests names on the invitations free of charge which saves you the worry of making a mistake or smudging them when writting them.  We can also print your guests names and addresses on the envelopes which will save you time and we only charge 20p per envelope for this service.
