  • How Do We Choose Godparents? - St Mary's Church Watton
    promises made at their own baptism and ALL Godparents MUST have been baptized Together with the Parents they are asked 3 questions which all the Parents and Godparents answer together Do you turn to Christ I turn to Christ Do you repent of your sins I repent of my sins Do you renounce evil I renounce evil Before making these promises Godparents and Parents must ask themselves whether they have decided to follow Jesus and therefore whether they are ready willing and able to say these things about their own faith If a Parent or Godparent feels unsure about the promises or decision and wants to talk them through just get in touch and we ll arrange a time to chat Choosing Godparents If you are choosing Godparents for your child you may find it helpful to ask questions like these Is he or she the sort of person who will pray for me us and our child Do I we think they ll set a good Christian example Will they encourage and support me us in bringing up our child to know Jesus for themselves And don t forget Every child must have at least one male and one female Godparent but there is no maximum number of Godparents All Godparents must themselves have been baptized When you invite somebody to be a Godparent let them have a look at this leaflet so that they know what will be expected of them If they are going to fulfil their promises it s best that they know what they are saying YES to Chosen to be a Godparent If you have been invited to be a Godparent then it is likely that your friends or relations think you are someone who will be a good example of Christian living can be relied upon to pray for their child will speak to their child about Jesus Christ will encourage them in their Christian faith Take time to think carefully about the promises you will be asked to make and the questions you will be asked about your own faith If you want to be a Godparent and are able to say YES to the responsibilities then be prepared for a joyful important commitment to the child in your care Preparing for the Service Find a few moments to read again the promises and statements of faith you will be asked to make and pray asking God to help you Maybe you could use a prayer like Loving Lord I pray that you would guide and help me in being a Godparent Thank you for and for the joy s he brings Help me to journey with him her as s he learns to know and trust you as his her saviour and friend Amen During the service sit with the Parents and your Godchild The service will follow the order on the screen and further instruction will be given by the minister don t worry about a thing After the Baptism
