Wedding First Parish Church Front

First Parish Church is a beautiful place in which to be married. We celebrate from 30 to 50 weddings each year. If you would like to have your ceremony in our church, it is best to schedule as early as possible.

These are a few of the most commonly asked questions and answers about weddings here:

1. Do we marry non-members?

Yes we do.  We invite you and your partner to meet with the pastor and discuss how this setting might support you in the covenant vows you wish to share.

2. Do we marry non-Congregationalists?

Of course. It is expected that at least one member of the couple be a committed Christian, since what we offer is a Christian wedding ceremony that includes prayers, scripture readings, a brief message, and sometimes a hymn. The marriage ceremony is a sacred service filled with joy and faith.

3. Do we offer a traditional or a contemporary wedding ceremony?

We incorporate the best of both. Most importantly, each couple gets the opportunity to personalize their ceremony through the selection of readings, music, and the readers.

4. How many times must the couple meet with the pastor?

Usually three. These sessions include pre-marital counseling and ceremony planning.

5. How do I schedule my wedding?

Contact the church office on Monday through Friday from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm at 207-363-3758.

6. Are there fees?

There are fees for the use of the building, the minister, the organist, and a soloist, if you so choose.  Contact the church office on Monday through Friday from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm at 207-363-3758.

7. Can you perform outdoor/offsite weddings?
Yes. See our Outdoor/Offsite Wedding page for more information. [CLICK HERE]
