Check with the church.  You may be able to use flash, or you may not.  If not, then you're going to have to make do by setting a high ISO (1600) to get shutter speeds fast enough to prevent blur from your movement and/or the subjects'.

Honestly, I suspect you don't have either the skills or the appropriate equipment to get the kind of photos that whoever's asked you to do this is expecting. Politely refuse and suggest they hire a professional - better for everyone in the long run.

Vague apologies if this seems overly harsh.

Re: christening

If you are gonna do it anyway, I suggest the following:

Go to YouTube and look for tutorials/videos that can teach you the skills needed to operate the camera correctly, and understand exposure. Experiment with the camera at home, in a normal, dim lighted room to get to know your camera. Take pictures of moving subjects and stationary. Once you know the ISO settings/capabilities of your camera then you´ll have a good chance to take nice pictures. This is especially if you cant use a flash! If you can use a flash, and still are not sure about settings, use "green square" and flash.

I write this due to the nature of your question. Experiment with the camera on manual settings is probably the best way to learn how to solve your problem.

We can probably help more if you tell us:

  • The lenses you own
  • Whether you're allowed to use flash in the church or not, and if you are, which flashes you own
