Memorials and Celebrations of Life

Celebrations of Life & Memorial Receptions

Helping you with your grief    

Our minister is available to you and your family members at any time. Please call the church office and your request will be forwarded to them. Our minister is able to help you find the support and care that you need during this time of loss and transition.

The Service

The funeral or celebration of life service may be held in the church sanctuary or another location of your choosing.   The seating capacity of our sanctuary is 150.  Our minister will meet with you to create a sacred experience that honours, celebrates and remembers the life of your loved one.  We will also assist you in choosing music that is appropriate and significant for your family.  Pictures and mementos may also be displayed in the sanctuary and/or the foyer.

Memorial Receptions

You may request a Memorial Reception following the worship service in the church foyer.  Preparation of food trays and flowers for the table(s) are the responsibilities of the family. We will try to meet all your requests, as time and available space permits.

 Memorial Gifts

Gifts may be given at any time in memory of a deceased loved one. There are a variety of funds to choose from: these include BUC’s General and  Memorial Funds.  Nationally, the United Church welcomes donations in care of the Mission and Service Fund, or to the United Church of Canada Foundation.
