Baptisms

Rosedale Presbyterian Church is happy to share in your celebration of new life through the Sacrament of Baptism. Baptisms are performed during our regular Sunday morning service of worship. You will need to meet with the minister prior to your child’s baptism.

The Sacrament of Baptism is a celebration of life and a time to remember the love and forgiveness of God. It is a sign of the Christian hope we share – the divine promise, that to God each one of our children is precious and valuable. It is a sign of the divine desire that each of God’s children may grow towards spiritual health and maturity in order that they may enjoy the fullness of Christian life which God holds in store for each one of us. The Sacrament of Baptism is an opportunity for parents to affirm the desire for their family to share in the community life, support and compassion of the church.

We invite those who bring their children for this Sacrament of Baptism to re-affirm their own faith in God, so they may share with their children the joy and love of Christ, as well as the warmth and fellowship.

For more information, please phone the church office at 416-921-1931.


Weddings

Congratulations, we wish you well as you begin your journey into married life.

Christians believe that marriage is a gift from God. In the marriage ceremony, a couple make a public declaration of lifelong commitment to love each other, come what may. We believe God intends loving relationships to be faithful, responsible, healing and sustaining of the couple and those around them. You will probably invest a lot of time planning your wedding. The day is important, but your marriage should last for the rest of your life.

We, at Rosedale Presbyterian Church, celebrate with you as you plan your wedding to one another at our church, or at a suitable venue of your choosing. For those of us at Rosedale, who will be working with you, it is always an incredible privilege to perform a marriage ceremony. We are able to become part of one of the most significant days in your life and share in the hopes of your new lifetime partnership. It is a joy to come to know each couple, as well as their families and friends. A wedding should be joy-filled and a participatory experience for all attending, so that each person attending leaves with their own relationship renewed.

We appreciate the opportunity to offer guidance, yet be flexible, open and adventurous with a couples’ crafting of the ceremony. It is all significant because God is present and invites us to the party of community, relationships and above all, love!

More information is available in our Wedding Policies and Procedures Information Sheet.
