We’d love to talk to you about arranging a Christian wedding ceremony and what a Christian marriage is all about. And we’d love to help you to prepare for both a great wedding and a wonderful marriage! Either of our locations (at Sunshine Beach and Tewantin) are in beautiful settings and in close proximity to Hastings St, Gympie Terrace and the marina.

- Confetti is not permitted on the grounds of the church, however, a small amount of rose petals may be used outside the church.

How To Arrange Your Wedding
To begin the process of arranging your wedding call the church office for advice on costs, procedures and to book a date for your wedding in the church diary.
Please call well in advance to ensure that your intended wedding date is available. A $300 deposit is required to confirm the booking.
Once the booking is secured we will send you a letter of confirmation and arrange the first wedding interview with one of our ministers.
Incidentally, a member of our congregation, for a reasonable fee, offers a beautiful option of releasing doves after the ceremony as a symbol of new beginnings. We’d be glad to put you in touch with him.
