ChurchWeddings, Baptisms & Memorial Services

Thank you for your interest in celebrating your wedding at the Armenian Church of St. Gregory the Illuminator Singapore, Singapore’s oldest Church. The Church is a National Monument surrounded by beautiful natural gardens, and is located in the heart of Singapore within walking distance from the Registry of Marriages and next to many fine hotels.

We typically allow two weddings per day – a morning wedding from 9am to 1pm and an afternoon wedding from 2pm to 6pm. The seating capacity of the Church is about 100, while the lovely adjacent garden area can accommodate up to 200 guests for an outdoor reception.

The requested minimum donation for a four hour period for weddings, baptisms and memorial services is S$2,600 for 2015. The donation is for use of the Church only, and includes permission to hold a small reception with food or drink (at your discretion and cost) after the ceremony on the Church grounds. The minimum requested donation does not include catering, tentage, florist, microphone, sound system, etc., all of which you will need to arrange separately.  The Church has recently upgraded its electric supply, so there is no longer a need to hire a separate generator to power your tent lights, fans, equipment etc.

We welcome all Christian denominations, but do not have a resident priest/pastor to conduct the ceremony; you will therefore need to procure the priest on your own. A S$1,000 deposit is required at the time of booking, and is refundable after the event provided that the premises are returned to us in their original condition, proper and clean.

The Church is open daily from 9am to 6pm – please feel free to visit the grounds at any time during opening hours.  We do not allow tentative bookings – dates will be confirmed only upon receipt of the donation & deposit in full. For more information on booking the venue or to check availability of dates for your wedding and/or reception,  please contact us at: weddings@armeniansinasia.org.
