Naming Services the Spiritualist Way

Spiritualist Namings....


Naming Services for children and adults are special occasions and are very meaningful to the person being named, as well as their family and friends.


The Naming Service is often conducted in a Church but can take place at other appropriate locations such as hospitals or at home.


Flowers are used in a Spiritualist Naming Service to indicate the pure and natural aspects of our existence. We recognise that which we call God created everyone and everything with love enabling us to learn and grow spiritually.


For both a child and an adult, a Naming Service is a celebration and acknowledgement of being part of the greater family of humankind, of the love engendered in the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man


In the Naming Service it is customary to give a Spirit name provided by those in the Spirit world, which will encourage and inspire the person when the need arises. All present at the Naming Service are asked to be Spiritual sponsors for the person being named.


You can find out more about the Naming Service by speaking to your local Minister, Officiant or Church. Why not pick up a leaflet for full details about Naming Services the Spiritualist Way.
