Our church, though not old like many beautiful Anglican Churches, is popular for larger weddings, and for it’s simple beauty, noted especially for the stained glass window above the Altar. St Christopher’s is a very popular wedding venue, as well as hosting a number of funerals. The indoor adjacent bright multiple spaces for us, from the church to two large halls, meeting rooms and Lady Chapel, make it very attractive. With out the need for additional travel or weather considerations, it makes it quite easy. Our additional catering support, service support (video/sound/data, etc) make it one less stress.
The Church seats about 350 people comfortably. There is a very capable sound and data system and screens that can be raised/lowered as needed. The kneeling rails can be removed as needed.
For special events and appropriate reimbursement, staging can be installed for some events.
There are very adequate rest room facilities to support this size event.
We do restrict weddings and funerals to be Christian, as this is consecrated ground and our conviction. If you are not Anglican, and are wanting Trinitarian orthodox Christian wedding or funeral, we will gladly host you if our facility is available. We do insist that we welcome you to our home at the beginning via our vicar or his representative.
We do hire this room for appropriate other events and meetings. Other organisations using our facility include Bible Study Fellowship, Christchurch City organisations and musical events.
