Congratulations!! Choosing to commit to someone in marriage is as challenging as it is exciting. At Saint Andrew’s we want to help you fulfil your hopes and dreams for your life together.
You can download all the information for a wedding at Saint Andrew's Uniting Church Australia here. To further discuss a wedding in Saint Andrew’s, contact the Church Administrator, by phone (07) 3221 2400 during office hours or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. This will allow you to check whether the date and time you want is available, and the administrator will be able to send you some material and arrange for you both to meet our Minister, Rev Susan Pickering. The date and time requested for a wedding remain provisional until the Minister has met with you and you have paid a deposit.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Does Saint Andrew’s perform same gender weddings?
Yes, at Saint Andrew’s we have committed to marriage equality and so we simply do weddings.
Can we be married in the Church if we are not baptised?
Yes, you can. The Uniting Church does not require baptism before a wedding can happen in the Church.
Can our Minister from another church conduct the wedding?
It is possible for another Christian Minister to conduct a wedding at Saint Andrew’s with the approval of Rev Susan Pickering. Please speak to us about your wishes.
Can we be married in the Church if we are divorced?
Yes, you can be. The Minister will still want to discuss why you believe you are right with each other, as he would with any other couple.
Can we have a wedding on Sunday?
While it is not very convenient because of the other services that happen on Sunday, if you have a special reason, please speak with us about it.

The maximum seating capacity is 340 people.
What's included in the cost?
Our fees are inclusive of the Minister's fee, organist's fee, wedding rehearsal, flowers, pew decorations, cleaning and office administration. Dependant on needs, our fee is negotiable.
