Woodville and Peniel United Churches welcome you to consider professing your faith in Jesus Christ through baptism. We practice infant and adult baptism. For more information about baptism in the United Church of Canada, please visit the national church web site here, or feel free to contact Rev. Wanda Stride.
We love being part of these special moments in your life. If you and your life partner are planning to be married, please contact us! We are currently working out a new marriage policy, but currently, our board leaves many decisions about weddings to the minister.
Making a public profession of love is an important decision. Rev. Wanda will need to meet with you at least once to plan the big day, and discuss your dreams, your fears, and anything else on your heart. This is a Christian ministry of Woodville Pastoral Charge, so onsite weddings will often have prayers and sacred readings. If this is an obstacle for you, and your wedding is taking place off site, please ask Rev. Wanda about alternate language.
Funerals, Celebrations of Life
Many people in the Christian tradition hold funerals, or celebrations of life in the sanctuary of their church. The minister usually presides, but sometimes it is in partnership with someone else. If you wish to have someone else preside at a funeral, please consult with the minister.
