With the birth of your child, you have experienced the miracle of a new life.
Many parents feel the need to say "thank you" and celebrate this miracle.

You may also wish for blessings and protection for your child, as you may have experienced
that you cannot control everything that life throws your way.
Or you may wish that others would also accompany your child on their journey through life and take responsibility for them.
Baptism is a Christian ritual that offers to take up all these
wishes and to celebrate them as a festival of welcoming and blessing.

Baptism is usually done with water in a church service.
But in many places there are now also baptism festivals where multiple people are baptised, during a service, together.
