Baptism is a symbolic action that signifies the new life God gives us as we join the church community. Baptism uses water as a symbolic cleansing that signifies the acceptance of new life within the church family. The sacrament of baptism is the single rite of initiation into the Christian community, the church.
Baptism in the United Church is recognized by all denominations of the Christian church that practice infant baptism. Similarly, if someone has already been baptised in another church at any age, the United Church recognizes their baptism and welcomes them as Christians. If you are seeking baptism for yourself or your child, contact our minister the Rev Lynn Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org or 519 829 9024
Your baby’s or child’s blessing ceremony can be a big occasion with extended family, friends and community. Or it can be an intimate moment, with just parents and child. Whatever you choose, it’s a time to focus on honouring your child’s life, the family and community that support you raising the child, and promising to do your best to help your child be their best.
If you are seeking Child Blessing for your child, contact our minister Lynn Hamilton at email@example.com.

A Church Wedding at Barrie Hill
Your marriage service is first and foremost a worship service. In this service you make a covenant with one another and with God. In the name of Christ, the church community blesses your marriage covenant, praying that you may know the freedom, joy and sanctity of life-long union. You do not have to be a member of the church to be married at Barrie Hill. We do ask, however, that you approach the ceremony with reverence, respecting the convictions of both the church and yourselves. Please direct your inquiries to the Rev Lynn Hamilton firstname.lastname@example.org
