Choosing Godparents

A Godparent is not a legal Guardian, but an individual who will support your child as s/he grows. Part of the Godparent's role is to encourage your child to think about life's bigger questions.

We strongly recommend that you choose at least one Godparent who has been Confirmed - but please be aware that all Godparents must have been Baptized.

You will need a minimum of three Godparents and at least two must be of the same gender as your child. Parents may be Godparents for their own children.

Please note that in our Baptism registers we are able to record a maximum of four Godparents per child.
