The Unitarian Community supports every individual’s personal search for truth and meaning. We believe that all people with or without a faith community should have the opportunity to mark and celebrate important moments in their lives in a way that reflects their values and spiritual beliefs.
Our Lay Chaplains will co-create with you ceremonies for occasions of significance to you: weddings, renewals of vows, child dedications, coming of age ceremonies, coming out ceremonies, house blessings, retirements, memorials and graveside services, and many others. The service you craft together will embrace and express your personal beliefs and values. We proudly offer services for interfaith clients and the LGBT community.
Our Lay Chaplains are specially trained to provide these ceremonies. They are registered with the Province of British Columbia to perform legal marriages.
The services can take place here at the Unitarian Church of Vancouver, at home or in publics halls or gardens—any place that affords quiet and privacy you desire
For further information regarding booking a unique and transformative wedding or other ceremony, please call the church office at 604.261.7204.
