5.Choosing Godparents


Choosing Godparents

Godparents are chosen as people who will pray for your child and help him/her, by their words and example, to follow Jesus Christ. They must have been baptised themselves and it is preferable (although not essential) that they have been confirmed. Confirmation is a special service at which older children and adults confirm the promises that were made on their behalf when they were baptised, thus becoming adult members of the church.

Godparents have to make the same promises as parents and you need to make sure that they are happy to do this. You should choose three (or more) Godparents, two of the same sex as your child and one of the opposite sex. If you have any questions about the applicability of an individual as a godparent, please contact the vicar.
