During today's service, the Archbishop of Canterbury said Prince George “is to share the life of Christ which is in him, regardless of whom he meets, their faith or nature or habits, so that others find life."

He told the congregation: "That sharing may be in words, or generous actions - most likely both - but it will be both very costly and infinitely rewarding.”

The Archbishop said the parents and godparents of Prince George have a 'simple task' - "To make sure he knows who this Jesus is. Speak of him, read stories about him. Introduce him in prayer. Help him to grow and flourish into the person God has created and has called him to be.”
