One of the most natural responses to the birth of a child is a desire to celebrate and say thank you to God. There is still a sense of wonder at a new life - the ‘miracle’ of birth - and so it’s only natural that parents will want to bring their children to God for his blessing. Parents will often talk about having a 'Christening,' which is really a nick-name for Baptism.
At a Baptism service parents and godparents make promises and commitments about the Christian faith and the church, these promises are made on the child’s behalf.
