Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a baptism and a christening?
In terms of the ceremony or sacrament that you might be expecting there is probably no difference. However we prefer to use the term baptism, which is the language used in the Bible and throughout Christian history. The sacrament of baptism deals with matters far greater than the simple naming of a baby, which is often an interpretation of the word “Christening”. Baptism marks the beginning of a journey with God which continues for the rest of our lives. It is a first step we take in response to God’s love. For all involved, particularly the candidates, but also parents, godparents and sponsors, it is a joyful and unrepeatable moment when we rejoice in what God has done for us in Christ, make serious promises, and declare our faith.
