First United Church - Family Dental Care in North Vancouver, BC | First United Church White Rock – Weddings & Memorials



Many couples who wish to be married desire to have their ceremony in the church they attended as children or the church of their elders. Others come to First United White Rock for their wedding because they reside in the area, or their families do as well. First United Church welcomes all couples including same-sex couples. Wedding ceremonies at our church are arranged first through one of our ministers–Rev. Louise Cummings or Rev. Bruce McAndless-Davis. Couples wishing to book for a wedding may contact the office administrator for details. For a complete weddings brochure click Weddings at First UC brochure. For an application form, click Wedding-Application-Form.



Our ministers offer support and comfort in times of grief. They welcome whoever comes, whether or not there is a formal church connection. They are available to help a family plan for a funeral or memorial service, whether it is held at the church or at a funeral home. Services that are held in our sanctuary often conclude with a reception in the lower hall. Contact the Church Administrator who will forward your request to one of our ministers.


To Find Out More


A small but beautiful Memorial Garden, located outside the front doors of the Church Sanctuary, was developed over 20 years ago to provide a place for ashes of members of the First United Church. It is maintained by volunteers and by a small one-time fee of $100 from the family at the time of the interment. Only ashes are put into the ground. No plaques are permitted. The Memorial Garden Book contains the names and dates of all persons whose ashes have been interred in the Memorial Garden. It is located beside the front doors of the church.


The Memorial Fund provides a way for friends and relatives to either honour a member of their family on a special occasion (anniversary, baptism, and birthday) or to express their sympathy at the time of bereavement – by making a monetary gift to the church. The funds for the Memorial Fund are administered by the Worship Committee and are used to develop aspects of worship and praise (as according to our policy). The Memorial Book is located in the narthex of the Sanctuary and records the names of those in whose honour or memory a gift has been given.
