Weddings, baptisms, funerals

Weddings

At The Gap Uniting Church, our church is a symbol of God’s presence with us, and we trust that in considering to be married in a Church building, it will help you feel His presence. Your wedding will take place within the act of Christian worship, where we acknowledge God’s purpose for your life and ask for His help within your marriage and your relationship. You will need to contact the Church Office to confirm a date and time as well as arrange for an appointment to meet with our Minster and fill in the ‘Notice of Intention of Marriage’ at least one month before the wedding. This form is a legal requirement before a marriage can take place. Find out more in our Wedding information and booklet (pdf) designed to assist you to plan for your wedding.

Baptisms

Baptism is a significant moment in the life of any child or adult.  At The Gap Uniting Church, we have the joy and blessing of working with families as they bring their children for baptism and also young adults and adults, who were not baptised as infants, as they decide to be baptised. If you are considering baptism for yourself or your child then please complete the Baptism Enquiry Form  and contact the Church Office to arrange an appointment with a member of the Ministry Team who would love to work with you towards baptism.

Funerals

At The Gap Uniting Church, funerals take place within the act of Christian worship, where we acknowledge God’s purpose for life and ask for His help dealing with loss. Please note the majority of these arrangements can usually be handled through a Funeral service allowing family members to concentrate on supporting each other and close friends. If you have chosen to organise the service and details yourself, please contact the Church Office for more information. Find out more in our Funeral Booklet - Family Guide designed to assist you to plan for a funeral.
