What a thanksgiving is all about
A thanksgiving …
- looks to the past and gives thanks
- is a Family celebration – welcoming your new baby
- includes a Naming ceremony and prayers for God’s blessing on your child and home
Thanksgivings can take place at a time and a place to suit the family and those leading the service.
Parents can choose Supporting Friends (like Godparents) and receive a Certificate.
This service includes a ‘Naming’ of your child, gives you the opportunity to invite 2-3 friends to stand with you – and includes prayers for God’s blessing on your new baby and home.
A Thanksgiving leaves open the possibility of Baptism at a later date.
