A Name Giving ceremony provides families with a wonderful opportunity to officially welcome a child into a loving circle of family and friends and to bestow their chosen names.
It is a happy and unpretentious celebration to give expression to hope and success for the future of the child. Ritual and ceremony are important in our lives. It serves as an acknowledgement of the significance of events and also a marker between one stage of our lives and another.
A ceremony to give a child a name is a particularly important of receiving them into the family and wider community and reflects the loving process undertaken by the parents in choosing that particular name.
By participating in a naming ceremony in no way will inhibit the child from any religious beliefs or seeking their own truths in life.
