My ChristeningThe Ceremony
My Christening was performed by Rev. Alan Moore, who also married my Mum and Dad at St. Andrew's way back in 1999. As it happens, my Mum was also christened at St. Andrew's and my Nanna and Poppy were married there also, so it's quite the family affair. I was extremely pleased to see Rev. Moore turn up - because then I wasn't the only boy in a dress!
My Godparents, Kathy Lollback (my Aunt) and Timothy Long (my Uncle), helped me throughout the day - mind you, they didn't warn me about the water that was going to be thrown on me willy nilly. I'm sure my reaction has taught them that this is the kind of thing I'd like their advice on in the future though!
After the shower I received at the church, everyone came back to my house and celebrated. For the majority of the celebrations I either cried (still getting over the water trauma) or slept in Nanna's arms. It's a tough job being christened.
