Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost?

The cost of a wedding at Albert Street Uniting Church is $1800. This includes the minister, the organist, the church officer (to ensure all things are set up according to your wishes), the pew decorations, the church flowers and the electronic bells. If you wish to include your own decorations/ flowers this can be discussed at the Wedding Information Night.

What are the times available?

We hold weddings hourly with a service taking about 35 minutes. When considering your preferred time please consult your photographer for the amount of time they require before your reception.

Who will be the minister?

We prefer that our ministers conduct the service, however we will allow other ministers to take part, or in some instances, to conduct the service. If you wish to have your own minister conduct the service, your minister needs to contact our Superintendent Minister to discuss this. Please note there is no reduction in fee if you choose to use your own minister.

Can I book a viewing of the church?

Albert Street Uniting Church is a heritage listed church and is over 125 years old. The pipe organ, century old stained glass and unique architecture all combine to create a welcoming atmosphere. Should you wish to view the church it is generally open Monday – Friday from 10am to 2pm or Sundays during our services at 9am, 11am and 6:30pm. Please note the minister is not available after the Sunday services to discuss your wedding, rather leave this to the Wedding Information Night where they can give you their full attention. The seating capacity of the church is 200 people downstairs and 500 people upstairs.

Do I need to pay a deposit?

If you choose to go ahead and book the Albert Street Uniting Church, we require a deposit of $100 to confirm the date and time. The remaining balance is due two weeks before the wedding. Payment arrangments can be discussed to suit your particular circumstances.

What is the Wedding Information Night?

About three to six months prior to the wedding we conduct our interviews. This evening is conducted in a group format at the church and a number of details are discussed, including:

  • the selection of wedding music is played by our organist for you to choose that evening
  • the ministers discuss how the services are conducted and answer any questions you may have
  • legal paperwork, such as the Intention to Marry form, is filled in.

Attendance at one of our Wedding Information Nights is compulsary to ensure arrangements for your day can be discussed and the legal paperwork attended to.

What are the legal requirements?

The Intention to Marry form MUST be completed one calendar month prior to the wedding for the wedding to be able to go ahead. The officiating minister must also see your birth certificate and photo identification or passport prior to the wedding day.

Is parking available?

Please note that parking around Albert Street Uniting Church is very limited. We encourage people to advise their guests to allow time to find parking. King George Square Car Park is the closest to us.

What are the final arrangements?

Lastly the minister will meet with you both either the week before the wedding or the day before for an hour to go over all the arrangements and to ensure the paperwork is in order etc.

We welcome couples from any denomination and can be contacted on 07 3031 3030 for any further enquiries or fill in the form below.
