A christening ceremony is an age-old tradition where a new member is welcomed into the Christian faith with open arms. A christening often also includes a baptism ceremony that welcomes your bundle of joy into the holy community. Get the word out to friends and family by sending one of our elegant online christening invitations featuring divine designs and spiritual motifs.

Is a baptism the same as a christening?

Often referred to interchangeably, there are distinct differences when it comes to baptisms and christenings. A baptism is the first sacrament in the Christian church where the sprinkling of holy water on the parishioner's head takes place. A christening is the naming ceremony where the child is given a new holy name. A christening can involve a baptism service, but is not required, and it is not a traditional sacrament.

Although a christening ceremony is commonly for children, mostly infants, anyone of any age can be christened. Regardless of the individualities that your church offers, the event is a significant spiritual moment and you’ll want to share it with the special people in your life. Do that effortlessly with our online christening invitations that reflect the event exactly as you want.

Who do you invite to a christening?

Because you’re organizing the christening through your church and are usually hosting the ceremony alongside your congregation, you may be limited in the number of people you can invite. In many cases, your child will be christened at the same time as others, so check with your priest to confirm the maximum number of guests that are allowed to attend.

The people you invite to your child’s christening will typically include immediate family members and their godparents. Close friends and extended relatives are also welcome if there is space. If not, you can extend a separate invitation for them to join you after the ceremony at a reception.
