    Yeah as Sarah88 said, I think you have to contact the vicar at the church you want her christened in x

    I've been good thanks hun, a bit better now. How are u getting on?
    I'm not sure about the arrangements tbh. I think after the christening usually you would have a party or something? We are thinking about having a naming ceremony for Joseph when we finally get it sorted, we would have a little service at the registry office and then a party. xx

    Umm... Here people normally have a bbq, just a little get together for lunch or something. A chance for everyone to hang out and catch up.

    hello lovely..

    my dads a vicar, so i'll help if i can.

    usually, you phone up the church or vicar of the church where you'll want her to be christened. then he/she will arrange a meeting with you, usually at your house, so that they can talk to you about when you want it, and what you want the service to involve, godparents etc and costs. i think they might have one or 2 more meetings with you before the day, but every church is a bit different. your allowed to invite as many people as you want to the service, and people usually have a party of some sort afterwards as a celbration!

    hope that helps a bit!
    good luck getting it all sorted :hugs: xxx

    I think it's just loads of talking really lol. Making promises to care and love your baby, then you pick responsible adults (in a christening it would be godparents) who make similar promises and then you can have readings and things. And obviously in a christening you would have the water part which doesn't happen in a naming ceremony.

    I saw you are having a rough time, if you need to escape you can always come over to mine or i can meet u somewhere xxx
