Weddings, Baptisms and Funerals

Kitchissippi United Church is an affirming and welcoming community for all genders. 

We will do our best to help you celebrate your marriage with a meaningful service of worship as you make your vows of faithfulness and love. The following information is intended to help you plan your special day.


The Minister of Kitchissippi United Church, Rev. Jenni Leslie, conducts all weddings at the church.An introductory meeting with the Minister is your first step. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the service, and to confirm the date and time of the wedding. The second meeting – and there only need to be two – is to rehearse the ceremony. Anyone participating in the wedding ceremony is strongly encouraged to attend.

The Music Director at Kitchissippi United Church is available to play for all weddings.Should a soloist or professional singer be requested for the ceremony, music should be provided to the church two weeks in advance (in the correct key). There may be a fee for extra rehearsals.
