Do you go to church at all? If so, speak to the minister/vicar/pastor/elder.
If not start going. Christening won't have a lot of meaning if you are not part of a Christian church.

if you aren't currently attending a church you can find which is your parish church here (assuming you are in England of course) - you can then make contact with your local vicar & take it from there

You can find more info on baptism here it's aimed at baptising children, but most of it is applicable to adults too.

I was 25 when I was baptised (Catholic) - its nice, takes on a special meaning when its a grown-up choice, imo.

Hi Frankie I was Baptised last year at the age of 25, along with my two children. Once I became a mum I felt a great sense of thankfulness which prompted me at attend church, I attended for about a year before getting baptised. If you dont already attend a church do so, go along to a family service with your ds. Being baptised along with my children was really special, joining Gods family together.
