It is usual to have three godparents, two of the same sex as the child and one of the opposite sex, but to have one godfather and one godmother is sufficient. Parents may be godparents to their own children, provided that the child has at least one godparent. Church law requires that godparents should be over the age of 16 years, baptised and confirmed, but the requirement of confirmation can be relaxed in certain cases. Parents who are not themselves baptised should make a decision to be baptised, otherwise they will not be able to make the vows on behalf of their child. Please speak to the Clergy if this is the case.

Please use the boxes below to give us information about your proposed Godparents.
