Births, Marriages and Funerals
Weddings at Emmanuel
Please contact us if you wish to be married at Emmanuel. We use the Prepare/Enrich (https://enrichcanada.ca) resource to help you prepare for a great and lasting marriage. This involves an online inventory/assessment of your relationship and usually 3+ meetings with Chris to deepen your relationship. Chris has been preparing couples for marriage for 25 years.
The fee for a wedding at Emmanuel, including the rehearsal and marriage preparation, is $400, negotiable according to circumstances. At least one of the couple has to be baptised and if not we are happy to baptise you after preparation.
Baptism is an ancient rite marking the transition of a person into the household of God through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Usually we baptise young children but adults also. Preparation for baptism involves three meetings with Chris and regular attendance at Sunday worship.
Sadly, we all reach this transition until the Lord Jesus Christ returns. Happily, we enter death in the hope of resurrection and our services reflect that hopefulness. Chris meets with the family to discuss plans for the service.
