Weddings

If you are choosing the Anglican Church-Batemans Bay as the location for your special day we recommend that you come along and get to know some of the people here first. By doing this you will feel connected and supported by our church community. We also want you to feel that this church could become your own spiritual home that is part of your own community. A place for you, your children and your friends to feel they belong.

Couples should be aware that you are required to complete the “Prepare and Enrich” marriage preparation program before you get married, this course helps couples understand each other and to work together as team. 

The cost of a wedding at the Anglican Church-Batemans Bay is free for regular attendees of our church. For all others the total fee is $450, which includes a deposit of $100 which is required at the confirmation of your booking.

Baptism

Baptism is available for babies, children and adults. In the service for babies and children the parents give thanks to God for this gift of life, make a decision to start their child on a journey of faith, and godparents if present, promise to help and support the child’s spiritual journey with Jesus. The church community also promises to welcome the child and to continue to pray for the family.

For your child, being baptised is the start of a lifelong journey of faith as part of the local and worldwide Christian family.

Baptism is also available for adults who have not been previously baptised.  Full immersion baptism is also offered which can add to the significance of the occasion.  A rededication service can also be arranged for those who have been previously baptised and wish to rededicate their lives to Jesus Christ.

Funerals

A funeral marks the close of a human life here on earth. It is the opportunity for friends and family to express their grief and to celebrate the life of a love one who has now completed their journey in this world.

The wounds of grief need time and care to heal. The funeral helps this process, by enabling us to acknowledge our loss, give thanks for the life of our loved one who has died, make our last farewell and begin to take up life once more.

A Christian funeral proclaims the Christian hope in the face of death – Jesus Christ – whose resurrection is the promise of our own.

A funeral for members of our church family is free.  For members of the general community a church funeral costs $260.
