Trinity Baptist hosts numerous weddings each year. We’re happy for our building to be a blessing to the community, and we invite you to contact our church office if you’re interested in having one here. However, here are some guidelines we like to advise prospective guests about in advance:

 

Arrangements should be made well in advance with the Church Secretary for the date, time, and setting of the ceremony.

Marriage Preparation Classes: are required. These may be provided by the Officiating Pastor, or by an approved outside counselling service.

The Wedding Rehearsal: usually takes place from 7 to 8 p.m. on the Thursday prior to the wedding. Please be sure that all participants arrive on time since only one hour is made available for this purpose. The sound system operator will be present at the rehearsal.

Time of Decoration & Wedding: Four consecutive hours are allotted for your wedding. This includes decorating, the wedding ceremony, pictures, and for removing wedding decorations. Unfortunately, decorations can’t be put in the sanctuary prior to wedding date, as the sanctuary has to accommodate other events.

We ask that people are evacuated from the premises by 4:30 p.m the latest.

Fees are as follows:

* The use of the Sanctuary (for four consecutive hours) is $600. [effective October 28, 2016]

All fees are due one month prior to your wedding day.
