I’m delighted to announce that I have added child naming ceremonies to my repertoire. And I’ve already a few under my belt since completing my Humanists UK training back in the Summer.
As you’ll know, ‘christenings’ – as they are known by Christian Churches (or Aquiqah, for those from an Islamic tradition) – are the church-centred rites that accompany the arrival of a new baby. As Humanists we prefer a more fun approach that gets people together and uses words, music and celebration. We call them naming ceremonies.
I have found the ceremonies I have performed wonderfully uplifting and enjoyable. Hop over to my Instagram feed to see some pics from some recent ceremonies. And please don’t hesitate to call we if you have a new arrival and would like to welcome the wee one to their new, wonderful life.
