Life Events

As an Anglican community, Christ Church Deer Park marks significant life events by means of sacraments and rites based on Anglican traditions. We would be delighted to have you and your loved ones celebrate a baptism, confirmation, or wedding with us. And when a loved one dies, is ill, or approaches the end of his or her life, we offer you and your family our comfort and support.

We hope that you will to call on our community in relation to any of these life events. For more information at or before a time of need, please do not hesitate to speak to us about your needs. Contact us.


Holy Baptism

At Christ Church Deer Park, we encourage your interest in baptism at any age and welcome inquiries from interested adults and/or parents (on behalf of infants and children). We are flexible with our dates and would be pleased to speak with you about our preparation process.


Confirmation

The Anglican Church of Canada confirms people of any age who are ready to affirm their baptismal vows and publicly declare their Christian faith. We recognize and appreciate that each person's faith journey is different: some may feel ready to be confirmed in their teen years, others in their adult years. We hope that you will be in touch with us if Confirmation is something you would like to explore.


Marriage

Thank you for thinking about making Christ Church Deer Park part of your wedding celebration. Our community would be be honoured to have you choose to begin your life as a married couple with us. We are happy to discuss plans for your special day and ask you to contact our clergy at least three months prior to your planned wedding date. We will do everything we can to support you as you begin — and continue — your commitment to a life together. If you are interested in exploring being married at Christ Church Deer Park, please feel free to initiate a conversation with us.


Funerals

When a loved one dies, there are many decisions to be made. We are here to help during this difficult time with spiritual counselling or referrals to appropriate helping professionals. We can also assist you to plan a service that brings together family and friends to honour a life well lived. Our funeral services follow a basic Anglican liturgy but can be traditional or contemporary, as you prefer, and may be personalized with readings, music, and tributes. We are sensitive to the needs of you and your family, and will take into account different church-going experiences and levels of spirituality. If a loved one has just died and you need our help, please contact us immediately.


Re-Affirmation • Reception Into The Anglican Communion

For Anglicans, an individual's spiritual development and faith can be honoured and expressed in a variety of ways, and we are open to new or evolving forms of expression. For instance, you may wish to reaffirm baptismal vows that were made years earlier (by parents or godparents on your behalf). In that case, Vows of Reaffirmation before the parish community could be an appropriate form of expression.

Or, you may have discerned that the Anglican church and its traditions are a more authentic way for you to express your spirituality than another denomination. In that case, if you are already a baptized Christian, a Reception into the Anglican Community may be the way to honour your original baptismal vows and your new life in our community. Please be in touch with us if reaffirmation or reception is something you are considering.
