Our Campus

The first reaction of so many people who visit All Saints Episcopal Church is,“What a beautiful little church.”  The historic building sits on a slight hill overlooking Keystone Road, its white walls and bell tower are eye-catching. But walk through the red front doors and you truly feel like you’ve stepped into another time. The church is 130 years old, filled with many memories of those who lived, worshipped and participated in services within its walls. All the loving touches are there. The history of the church is reflected in the beautiful stained glass windows, the rich red carpeting that leads to the needlepoint kneelers, the altar and the graceful pipes and the rich sounds from the organ when it’s played.  It is a place that invites quiet reflection, but also welcomes joyous celebrations.  The lovely little church can seat 200 for a wedding. The Parish Hall, ideal for a reception, can seat 80 for a sit down meal.

If a couple wants an outdoor ceremony, the gazebo in the garden offers a tranquil setting. It also is ideal for a vow renewal ceremony.

 Weddings are special moments in life, filled with loving memories and  celebrations to mark a couple’s new life together. All Saints is a place that welcomes everyone and opens its doors to share with others.

Wedding coordinators, if present, are happy to assist with transporting flowers to the reception.

 A license from the State of Florida must be obtained.

Bulletins for the wedding service are not provided by the church. However, a member of the clergy is happy to provide support, examples and needed information.

Photographers and Videographers are to consult with the officiant and Altar Guild member before the service.

 Marriages are celebrated any day except on Sundays, during Holy Week, Christmas and usually not during Lent.

 

 Episcopal Weddings:

 

Pre-Marital Instruction

Pre-marital instruction takes place with the priest performing the ceremony, other clergyperson,or with a licensed counselor for a minimum of 4 hours (not including initial visit and rehearsal).

 

Baptism

One of the parties must be baptized before a couple may begin preparation for marriage in the Church.

 

Divorce

If one of the parties has been divorced, the Bishop may need to consent to the solemnization of the marriage.

 
The Rite and Other Customs

The form and practice of The Book of Common Prayer are followed at All Saints’. The BCP contains The Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage. Additional ceremonial acts are at the discretion of the priest.We welcome a church wedding with the couple providing their own officiant, with prior approval from the priest.

 

Holy Eucharist

Holy Eucharist is often part of the Marriage service because in it we participate in the heavenly banquet where we are bound together in the holy mysteries of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. If desired, a service without Eucharist may be appropriate.

 

Readings

A member of the clergy will go over the service with you and help you to choose appropriate readings from scripture. The scripture choices are found on page 426 of The Book of Common Prayer. It is appropriate for members of family or friends to read the Old Testament and Epistle as well as the Prayers of the People. A member of the clergy reads the Gospel.

 

Music

A member of the clergy or choir director is pleased to work with you on selection of appropriate hymns from the three Episcopal hymnals (The Hymnal1982, Wonder, Love and Praise, Lift Every Voice and Sing). Please keep in mind that we have copyright clearance for only those hymns printed in the hymnals that we use regularly.
