Weddings, Infant Dedications, Memorial Services
The church’s Minister and our lay chaplains conduct rites of passage including weddings, infant naming and dedication ceremonies, and celebration-of-life or memorial services. These may be held at the church or off-site.
Many people have no formal association with organized religion. Yet within families and communities there is a strong need to recognize or celebrate significant rites of passage in a way that is meaningful to the individuals involved. Our Minister and our lay chaplains provide this service to the larger community beyond our church congregation by creating specific services for those in the broader community.
Our ceremonies are very often influenced by the beliefs and desires of the individuals participating. People are welcome to include their own voices and ensure that their spiritualities are reflected.
From outside our church? Enquiries are welcome from those who are not Unitarians but who are interested in our way of marking life’s special occasions.
If our Minister is not available to perform a service, one of our provincially licensed lay chaplains would be happy to work you.
