What is a Christening or a Baptism?

A christening or baptism is a religious service that introduces a person to the Church, and are initiated, purified, or given a name. Traditionally the service is carried out within a couple of months of a baby's birth, and is intended to welcome and initiate them into the Church and instil some of the basic Christian principles and values. Godparents form an integral part of the Christening or Baptism Service, and are traditionally friends or family of the infant who are selected by the parents to help them raise the child according to the religious faith. In modern times this concept has evolved into more of an "honorary parent" in the child's life rather than a religious instructor. Godparents usually present a child with a christening gift on the day of the christening.
