We welcome babies and young children who are new to our church in ceremonies of child dedication.
The ceremony takes place during the first part of the Sunday service and can take one of several forms depending upon the wishes of the parents. These can include:
- A naming with water
- A naming with the four elements (earth, air, fire, water)
- A ceremony of dedication with the child’s names
In each case there is also a charge to the parents (and godparents) and a pledge by the congregation to provide a nurturing spiritual home for the young people.
