Everyone is welcome to services and events!



Thank you for considering Central Saanich United Church for your wedding. We will be pleased to discuss the necessary arrangements with you. 

You can contact us at 250-652-2713, or  Once a date is set and you have had a discussion with our minister, our Wedding Host will help you sort out many details. These answers to frequently asked questions may help:

We are a historic church situated in the center of the Saanich Peninsula - a small church nestled under the trees. We can seat up to 75 or 80 comfortably. Most parts of our buildings are handicapped accessible.

Yes!  We are pleased to perform same gender marriages, as we would any marriage.

All weddings in our sanctuary are officiated by our minister. However, exceptions involving family members and friends can be discussed with our resident minister.

Yes!  We are quite willing to meet with you and discuss options.

Our Church Musician can play wedding music you choose, in consultation with our minister. Other music options are open to discussion.
