Our Beautiful Church:

You might like to plan your wedding, in our church.  We would welcome you and your guests!

Our church was built in 1893. It is located in the center of St. Albans, across the street from spacious and lovely, Taylor Park. You would enter through the front door, or porte-cochere on the left side.

From the front door on the right, or the porte- cochere, behind the camera, you would be in our Narthex. You would prepare to enter the church through the doors on the left.

You would then come down the aisle, to a grand march, played by our Organist, Stephan Conrady, trained and educated in Germany.

You might include, in your wedding service, some music played on our wonderful Samick Grand Piano. Stephan is highly skilled with piano.

Stephan’s bio is included on this site under “Church Staff.”

 

You might wish to include some vocal solos.  Erin Grainger, is a Masters Graduate of McGill University with Degrees in Vocal Performance.  Her bio is on the site, under “Church Staff.”

Our 1893, Hook & Hastings, Tracker Organ is acclaimed to be the finest in New England of its kind, by Andover Organ Company of Newton, Massachusetts and by the American Guild of Organists.
