Weddings

 We, the people of Cooke’s-Portsmouth United Church welcome couples seeking a venue for their wedding. We offer you spacious and inviting facilities, together with capable and competent support.  Soon after we receive your request the Minister will contact you in order to confirm your initial meeting time with the Minister.  No request will be approved without an initial interview and the endorsement of Session.  Following the initial interview, and provided that our Minister has agreed to preside your wedding, you will meet on at least two more occasions with the Minister to discuss the wedding service. Our fee schedule will be discussed with you during your initial interview.

If you have any further questions, please call the church office at 542-4545 on Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., or leave a message on the answering machine.
 

Baptisms

 Baptisms within the United Church of Canada are guided by sound Christian principles. Baptismal practices may vary from one congregation to another, and are established by elected Church officials. At Cooke's-Portsmouth requests for baptism are under the authority of the Session, which meets monthly. Parents seeking baptism for their children, or adults seeking baptism should consult with the minister.

Upon the recommendation of the Minister, Session provides consent on behalf of the Congregation to perform the Sacrament of Baptism.

All Are Welcome Here!
