About Unique Wedding Venue

A Church with a Difference…

Your wedding will be a memorable occasion when held in a unique venue such as our 1910 restored church. Relocated to the Historical Village in 1987, it was originally built for the residents of Pialba and stood in Main St., where Coles now stands.

This 100-year-old non-denominational church is available for weddings, funerals, christening/naming ceremonies, renewal of vows and seats 90 people. A new ramp makes it wheelchair friendly.

An electric and pump organ are available if you have an organist to play them, otherwise, there are power points for those who bring their own music.

Set in aesthetically beautiful surroundings with the option to have a garden wedding, no confetti, rice or rose petals are allowed in the church.

You may decorate the church prior to service if you so wish and rehearsals must be within normal museum opening times.

Price is more than comparable to other churches.
