Child Blessings

In our lives there are important life events which we sometimes choose to celebrate in community. Here at Walmsley Unitarian Chapel, child blessings are viewed as a choice to welcome children in the ceremony. (I.e; this is not a sacrament/necessary rite of passage.)

Spiritual community and a sense of belonging is valued; building connections through meeting together, and Child blessing/Welcoming/ Naming ceremonies reflect this personalised ethos. It is important to get to know the religious community in which a ceremony may be held and ceremonies here are made personal and meaningful though connecting in the Walmsley Unitarian community,( and if you find this is the right environment for your spiritual approach.)
