Considering a marriage or blessing?
For many people, a civil ceremony is too brief and impersonal, yet they also feel out of place with a traditional church wedding service. They may not be churchgoers, or even ‘religious’ in the conventional sense, but they still feel a reverence for the vows they are making, and a wish to express their faith in life, in one another and in their future together. Does this apply to you?
Your child needs a name, thoughtfully given and a welcome from the family and the blessing of your community. Your child needs the open expression of your love and your commitment to its future.
