Our staff are familiar with wedding and party vendors in the local area and can assist with recommendations and event planning. Rental rates depend upon the length of time needed and which church amenities are required. A non-refundable deposit is required at contract to guarantee reservation of the date and time.
Non-members in need of ministerial services such as weddings or funerals should feel free to contact Rev. Gregory at email@example.com or Rev. Ann at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about availability of the church and the ministers’ schedules.
Unaffiliated groups may rent our facilities for regular use provided their activities are not in conflict with Unitarian Universalist principles. At present a Jewish congregation and an Al-Anon support group regularly meet at UUCB. Anyone interested in scheduling meetings or events at the church should email Holger Pedersen for availability and rates.
TYPES OF CEREMONIES
RELIGIOUS CEREMONY : Typically more formal, but can be conducted informally as well. They include religious elements, rituals and/or traditions within a single denomination.
ECUMENICAL CEREMONY: Blends the religious elements, rituals and/or traditions from two or more denominations. Also referred to as multi-faith, inter-faith or interdenominational.
Conveys a religious tone but does not refer to the specific traditions of any particular denomination.
SPIRITUAL CEREMONY: Evokes a sacred or divine feeling. Spirituality is based on individual experience and therefore means different things to each of us. Inspiring and beautiful readings are included, but remain universal and are not necessarily connected with any particular religion.
CIVIL / SECULAR CEREMONY: Celebrates love and human need every bit as much as religious ceremonies but includes no religious elements, rituals or traditions. Secular invocations and poetry typically replace prayers and scripture readings.
