Havering's Registration service offers a welcoming ceremony for your child as an alternative to a religious ceremony.
Any parent can arrange a welcoming ceremony, you do not have to be married and it does not matter what spiritual or religious beliefs you have.
Format of the welcoming ceremony
Introduction and welcome by the celebrant
- readings / poems (optional)
- naming the child
- pledges / promises by child supporting adults or grandparents
