A wedding at Jamberoo Anglican is a lovely way to begin married life together.
Are you interested in getting married in our church?
Congratulations on your engagement and thank you for considering Jamberoo Anglican Church for your wedding ceremony.
We hope that this information will assist you in the early stages of preparing for your big day.
More than a building…
Church is more than a building – in fact, the building we call a church is really just a fancy rain shelter to enable the real church to meet in comfort.
There is an old saying used to help little children learn to spell church: “Church is no good unless U R in it”. The truth of that little saying is profound: The true church is the people of God gathered together, meeting to encourage each other and to learn more about living God’s way.
In other words, to be married in a church means to become part of the life of God’s people who meet in the building we call a church building.
…more than a photo opportunity
So getting married in a church building is more than a photo opportunity. It is a public declaration before your guests – and before the people of God – in fact, before God himself – that you intend to spend the rest of your life totally dedicated to the wellbeing of the one you are marrying.
To help you prepare for life together, we require all couples seeking marriage in Jamberoo Anglican Church to attend a one- day seminar called “Growing Together” which helps you prepare for life together.
Some comments from recent attendees at “Growing Together”: A groom, 35: “You know that course? I thought it’d be a crock. But it was all right. It was actually very good.” A bride, 28: “There were some hard times on the course, but it was fantastic to deal with some of those issues before we got married”.
