Making Wedding Arrangements
Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming marriage! As you begin to prepare for your wedding day, you may feel overwhelmed by a myriad of things to do. We want to work with you to ensure that the details of your church booking, and more importantly, your marriage preparation are taken care of, so that you can proceed with the other details.
Not only do we want your wedding day to be wonderful, but we'd like your marriage to be solid and fantastic. NSAC requires that you have pre-marriage mentoring if you are married by one of our pastors and/or use our facilities. Our mentor couples are not trained cousellors but church members who have been married at least five years, have a strong and open marriage relationship, and have been trained in the Home-Based Pre-Marriage Mentoring Program. This program provides an opportunity to discuss important issues that will come up in your marriage - communication, values, conflict and expectations. It is a six to eight week course and we'd like you to complete your mentoring well before your wedding date, where possible. (Or ideally before you get engaged!)
Fill out the "Pre-Marriage Mentoring Application Form" below and submit it to the church office as soon as possible or contact Anne Thicke at 604-984-6422 ext. 235 or [email protected] for more info. Some seasons are busier than others, so the sooner you apply, the sooner you can begin!
If you are interested in getting married at NSAC, there are several documents availabe to download below to assist you with this process. First, please read "Getting Married at NSAC" for information about our facilities, booking process, rehearsals, wedding elements, and legal requirements.
When you are ready to begin the planning process, please fill out the initial "Wedding Application Form" and return it to the church office. We will see if your requested date is available and get back to you. Once we have confirmed that your date is available, please fill in the "Church Facilities Booking Request Form" and hand it into the church office as soon as possible. This will ensure your booking.
The fees for the church rental and related costs are available in the "Facility Rental Fee Schedule" (3rd page of the facility booking document). The church portion of the fees are due within 2 weeks of your booking being confirmed by the church office.
If you have any other questions please call our church office 604-984-6422.
