Thank you for your interest in considering St George & St Andrew United Church to be part of your wedding. Your covenant of marriage joins you in a relationship so intimate that it profoundly affects your whole being. It offers you the promise of a love that is true and will mature over time.
Such love requires that you commit your lives to one another freely and without reserve, for the sake of a deeper and wider life together. Such a partnership can be a profound expression of the grace, passion, forgiveness and love that has its source in God. You become one in body; and throughout your married journey you will strive to become one in mind and heart.
Marriage is an ongoing commitment that should not be entered into lightly. We believe that marriage is a lifelong covenant between two people, made before God and celebrated in community. A marriage ceremony in the United Church is a joyful affair with a personal touch whether you celebrate out of doors or in the sanctuary. In any location we will celebrate with a service of worship where we will mention God, and will ask you to pronounce a lifelong commitment to one another. Within this, there is a lot of freedom for you, the couple, to shape the ceremony so it expresses your personalities and spirituality. Our Session and the minister review every wedding request that comes before the church and reserve the right to approve or disapprove of a request. Should a request be denied (which rarely happens) we will make an effort to connect you with suitable resources and other possibilities.
We commit ourselves to upholding your commitment in our prayers.
We wish you a long, happy and prosperous life together!
