Weddings

We would be honored to host your wedding at our church. Your guests will find our 1920s building beautiful and intimate. Our sanctuary is ideally suited for small to medium sized weddings, and our church is conveniently located one block from the Metro-North train station, three minutes from the Hutchinson River Parkway, and five minutes from I-95.

Below are answers to some frequently asked questions, or send us an informal inquiry by clicking HERE.

How big is the sanctuary?

We can comfortably seat 125 people. The parking lot holds about 35 cars, and additional on-street parking is available.

Do I have to be a member of the church to get married there?

No. People of all faiths and backgrounds are welcome to be married at Community Church.

Do you perform same-sex weddings?

Yes. The United Church of Christ is proud to have been the first Protestant denomination to do gay weddings. We celebrate marriage equality as the law in New York State.

Can another clergy person perform the ceremony?

Yes. Our pastor can co-officiate, or another clergy person of your choice can perform the ceremony independently.

Can I also book the Community Hall for the reception?

Yes. The Community Hall has a full kitchen, restrooms, and space for both a sit-down dinner and a dance floor. Tables and chairs are available at no extra charge.

As you plan for your special day, please feel free to contact us if you would like to tour the sanctuary, inquire about pre-marital counseling, or simply learn more about practical matters like fees and available dates.
