Rites of Passage

At Chorlton Unitarians we hold ceremonies for child blessings, weddings, funerals, and other rites of passages such as coming of age ceremonies, hand-fastings and commitment ceremonies.

We are licensed to perform both same sex marriages and marriages between a man and a woman.

We are pleased to be able to offer celebrants who have experience of writing and delivering ceremonies with people of all faiths and none:
