A Baptism Ceremony is not just for babies; children of any age can have a Ceremony. One of our experienced Ceremony Celebrants, (Lay Officiant, Minister or Chaplain), will be pleased to perform your Baptism Ceremony for your son or daughter. All of our Celebrants are highly trained and qualified; they all share the goal of providing you with a memorable ceremony and special day. They do not represent any religion, we conduct the ceremony you want, your way.
It is IMPORTANT to note that in these nondenominational Baptism ceremonies, your child is not Baptized into any particular Religion, but the parents do receive a beautiful Baptism certificate. The nice thing about this Baptism ceremony is that later in life should your child make a personal decision to unite with a faith community of the child's own choice, your child will be able to present themselves as a fully Baptized person.

Most Baptisms are held in homes or other suitable venue like a hotel, reception facility, etc. Some families even hold the ceremony in a park or other natural setting. The ceremony can be held at a location and time convenient to all concerned. We usually ask the Celebrant closest to you to conduct the ceremony.
You may wish to include your older children in the Baptism or Naming Ceremony as well as your new baby. The Ceremony is the perfect opportunity to declare your promises to your child before family and friends. It's also the perfect opportunity to involve relatives, such as grandparents, and maybe other adult friends. It is nice to have supporting adults or God parents, allowing them to confirm their special relationship with your child and share their promises at the ceremony in front of you and the guests.
The welcoming ceremony had a personal quality, with the beautiful poem and readings, that made it special for us as parents. The extra TLC you added to the ceremony made it extra special. You were warm and friendly, organized and thoughtful and we would have you back anytime! Thanks again for a wonderful memory!
