This information is offered as you make plans for your wedding. It is hoped that it will answer some of your practical questions about the possibilities and traditions of how weddings can be conducted in and through our church. We do our best to accommodate everyone who comes to us to be married.
The United Church of Canada, and Laidlaw Memorial United Church, offers you a variety of ways to be married, in the church or at another venue, respecting and welcoming the wide diversity of traditions.
At Laidlaw Memorial United Church, we are committed to doing all we can to respect and welcome all persons. We are committed to the equality of all persons before God. Laidlaw Memorial United Church Council has ruled that requests for marriage from all couples, including same sex couples, will be treated equally and without prejudice under this policy, and in accordance with the Laws of Ontario.
It is possible in Canada for a wedding to be civil ceremony only, with legal, but not religious, implications. We try, as we are able, to be of help to all couples who come to us for assistance, and welcome all inquiries.
