Your Center Church Wedding

As anyone can see from the pictures, Center Church is a beautiful space for a wedding.  But it is more than a beautiful space; it is a house of worship, where, since 1638, people have been gathering to hear and ponder God’s Word and to celebrate and mark the joys and sorrows of life.  A wedding is certainly a great joy, and those who marry at Center Church become part of a long history.

Center Church has a very open and liberal policy toward weddings in the church.  We invite couples that are not part of our church or our denomination to celebrate their marriage in the church with our pastor officiating.  Since we recognize that divorce sometimes happens and that life moves on, we do celebrate the weddings of persons who are divorced.  We are also an “Open and Affirming” congregation, which means that we support the full rights and dignity of gay and lesbian persons to marry.

 

 

Music

We have a beautiful Fisk pipe organ, and if you would like organ music, you must use the services of our organist.  However, you are free to make other music arrangements.  Some people hire string trios or other musical groups.  Sometimes a friend or family member provides piano music.

We also have a Steinway Grand Piano, which a competent pianist can use without charge.

Please note that Pratt Hall has a sound system available, but the Meeting House does not.  The Sexton can provide details.
