NPWC offers five (5) main services to our NPWC families, friends and community. The five are weddings, counselling, funeral services, baby dedication, and community services hours. Some of the services are paid while the others are offered free of charge.
Baby dedication is done on the third Sunday of each month. Advanced registration is required. Parents are also required to meet with the Pastor before the day of the dedication.

The different types of counselling offered are pre-marital, marital, family, and individuals. The cost of the counseling is discussed in the initial consultation with the Pastor
Pre-marital counselling is offered to all couples who intend to have a NPWC Pastor officiate the wedding. These counselling sessions are aimed at preparing the couples for married life.
Married couples attend sessions together to discuss specific issues in the marriage relationship.
- Family & Individuals
These counselling sessions aim at assisting families and/or individuals to understand, overcome or manage personal challenges.
Christian weddings are offered at NPWC. A Christian wedding is identified as a union between a biological male & female. Couples can choose to have a NPWC Pastor officiate the wedding or they can choose to only use the facilities for the wedding.
- Wedding Officiated by a NPWC Pastor: Pre-Marital Counselling
For a Pastor of NPWC to officiate a wedding, the bride and groom are required to attend approved pre-marital counseling provided by NPWC.
- Wedding Officiated by an Outside Pastor
Couples can also choose to only rent NPWC’s Sanctuary and use an outside Pastor. In such cases, the use of items or teachings that are in direct contradiction of NPWC’s beliefs is prohibited. Our beliefs/statement of faith can be found on our website.
The church doors are opened half hour prior to the wedding. All guests/attendees are required to exit the church and property within half hour following the wedding. All attendees to a wedding are guests of the couple, and, therefore, the couple’s responsibility.
