    Difference between Baptism and Christening

    What is the difference(s) between a baptism and a christening? And which faiths use which methods? I have seen some English parish registers where sometimes it is called a baptism and sometimes it is called a christening (usually by different recorders). Are there some faiths where the terms are NOT basically interchangeable?
