Can I get married at Cole Harbour Woodside United Church?

If you are interested in being married at Cole Harbour Woodside United Church we invite you to call us or send us an e-mail at least 4 months in advance of the date you are seeking.  This is so we can check the availability of our minister and sanctuary and you can complete a pre-marital course through the church.  Being divorced or not a member of the United Church of Canada does not preclude being married in our church. Most of the weddings we do are for people currently involved in the life of our congregation but we are certainly open to members of the community requesting this ministry.  All weddings are approved by our worship committee.


Can I rent your building?

Yes!  We love sharing our building.  Please call the office 902-434-7714 and speak to Jennifer about space which is available and our cost recovery policy.


What about baptism?

Baptism is one of two sacraments we observe in the United Church of Canada.  It involves parents/legal guardians for children, those of an age of discernment for children/teens or adults making professions of faith and a commitment to the life, work and ministry of the congregation.  As a community of faith, we too make promises to provide opportunities for learning, faith, growth and service in the life of the community. We would be delighted to talk with you about baptism.


What is PAR?

PAR stands for pre-authorized remittance.  It is a convenient way many people use to make regular donations to the work of ministry in the congregation.  It involves and automatic debit each month from your account and credited to the church.  You can obtain a PAR Registration form at a church service or from the church office.
