Gartrell provides an elegant traditional setting for a wedding and we will work with you in planning a day to treasure and remember.

Initially, the Minister will meet with you in the church and discuss your hopes and plans. When you have secured a date, another meeting will be arranged to complete the legal documents.

An internationally-recognised marriage course called PREPARE, will also be offered to you. This is completed online, in your own time, and may then be discussed with the minister at another time together.

A rehearsal is encouraged in the week before the wedding.

Baptism welcomes us into the worldwide Christian Church and at Gartrell we baptise children and adults as an expression of God’s love and grace.

Baptism is a Sacrament of the church which means God’s love is shown through the action of water. At Gartrell, children are baptised at the font and adults by full immersion in the baptistry during a
Sunday worship service.

Everyone is welcome to be baptised; the Minister will meet with parents and individuals to discuss this special and important decision.

(There is no charge for a baptism)

The Dawn Service is usually conducted at the Soldier’s Memorial statue opposite the church at 6.20am each ANZAC DAY.

At this time of COVID restrictions, an outdoor service was not conducted in 2021.

Instead the Dawn Service was held indoors in the Gartell Church building.
