UCC Clergy Willing to Officiate at Same-Gender Weddings

The following is a list of clergy who are willing and able to perform same gender weddings as their situation allows. Some are clergy in a church setting and are able to perform unions according to the church's stated policies. Some are retired or serve in a non-church setting and are available to perform unions in other settings. When contacting the clergy please share as much information as possible so they can accurately assess their availability.

This list will be updated as more clergy add their name to the list.
