The Church of Our Lord would be delighted to help you in beginning your new life together as a married couple. It is with great joy that we offer caring and personable support throughout your wedding preparations.
Our Ministerial staff, under the leadership of Rev. Dr. Rod Ellis, aims to make your wedding day a most memorable and very special occasion. As we look forward with you to your Christian wedding ceremony, our trained counselors provide personal marriage preparation. Here we assist in ensuring that a firm foundation for a lifelong marriage relationship is established.
Our warm and welcoming church building was built in 1876 and is the oldest in Victoria, BC! Now a designated Federal and Provincial Heritage site, this beautiful example of Carpenter Gothic style architecture is set in the heart of Downtown Victoria’s picturesque Humbolt Valley on land donated by Sir James Douglas. It features stunning stained glass windows, a vaulted ceiling, dark wooden accents and an Appleton pipe organ dating back to 1827 (another gift from Sir James Douglas).
Our Wedding Coordinator, Susan van de Merwe, is very pleased to assist you with all of the necessary arrangements for your wedding rehearsal and ceremony. She will be on hand to guide you through the rehearsal; smooth out all the last minute details on your wedding day; coordinate wedding decorations; receive delivered flowers; set up candles and the registry signing table. Susan will also organize a sound technician to ensure that the sound for your wedding is of the highest quality. If desired, she will gladly refer you to our list of talented musicians including organists, pianists, and small ensembles.
To book your wedding today or for more information, please contact Susan through the church office at 250-383-8915 or by e-mail at [email protected]
