weddings

Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, so we are here to assist you in any way we can.  The beauty of our property is that there are many options available from small and boutique to large and modern with both indoor and outdoor options.  We are happy to put together a package unique to your requirements or you can choose from one of ours which will be available to view soon. 

Our Priest in charge - Warren Watson is happy to meet with you to talk about officiating the service on your special day otherwise you are welcome to bring your own Christian Minister or celebrant to take the service (with approval from our leadership team).  

There are many beautiful areas around our grounds and close by for wedding photos.  If you have guests that will be travelling a distance to your wedding there are also a number of great places to stay within a few minutes drive.

funerals

​Organising a funeral is something that not many of us are too familiar with.  Our Vicar - Warren Watson and the Pastoral Care team are very empathetic and are available to be with you, your family and friends during this time to walk with you as you grieve the loss of your loved one.

Warren would be honoured to take the funeral service for you, but is also happy that if you have your own minister who fits with the Ethos of our church that they take the service.

To make sure your loved one is honoured in a way that is respectful to them and also a time of reflection and celebration of all they meant to you, we will work alongside you and your funeral director to create a service unique and special to all that knew them.

The church auditorium is able to seat up to 250 people and has a beautiful glass window behind the altar which looks out into a large tree that is home to many birds.  There is a very good sound system and overhead projectors which are able to be used on request.

The foyer is available following the service for light refreshments.  We have a caterer who is able to organize this for you otherwise you are welcome to take care of this yourself.

If you would like more information please feel free to phone the office on (09) 483 6989 or email us 

 

To request a home visit from either Warren or one of our Pastoral care team, please contact us

The chelsea rooms

Do you have a birthday or occasion but don't have the space to celebrate it?
Cedar Centre has 2 school prefabs "The Chelsea rooms" which we are able to hire out for occasions such as these!  Chelsea room 1 comes equipped with a small kitchen including a fridge, microwave, zip and sink.  It also has 2 large toilet areas with a changing table in one.  The floor is easy to clean lino which is perfect for kids birthdays.  The room is child friendly and spills out onto a covered deck which is completely enclosed for children.  If you have a big event and require more space Chelsea Room 2 (right next door) may also be available on request.  This is a carpeted area slightly bigger than Chelsea Room 1 but cannot be hired separately as it does not have kitchen or toilet facilities.  Both areas have seating and tables.
