Weddings

Congratulations on your decision to get married! Neutral Bay Uniting Church is pleased to conduct weddings for all adults who are legally entitled to marry in Australia. Neutral Bay Uniting Church is a popular choice for weddings due to our location and beautiful historic church. Below you will find some information about holding your wedding at our church. (You can view more wedding photos too.)

As we move into 2021, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to influence what activities can be run and what facilities are available for use. We take advice from the NSW Government Public Health Orders and the Uniting Church in Australia and recognise that this is an extremely fluid situation that is constantly evolving.

Note that all our facility users must have an appropriate COVID Safety Plan that demonstrates an understanding of the Government Guidelines in respect of maximum participants, social distancing and hygiene requirements and also commits to maintaining those standards during the activity.

Our Bookings & Events Coordinator will be able to provide guidance on what spaces are available, how many persons are allowed in those spaces and any other conditions of hire.
