The Old Chapel Centre, Alfriston offers a unique venue for a CHURCH wedding, blessing, special service, renewal of vows and/or wedding reception in the beautiful South Downs village of Alfriston. This is a unique opportunity to combine the atmosphere of a Church with a non-conformist service.
This beautifully refurbished and intimate chapel, steeped in history, right in the heart of the village and adjacent to the Tye (village green) can comfortably accommodate 80 guests. There is a private walled garden, ideal for champagne reception or even a small marquee.
The interior of the Chapel is relatively unchanged in 200 years. Built in 1801 by the village, many of the original features including wooden panelling, upstairs gallery, stained glass windows and wonderful pipe organ are still in place.
A private car park, close to the Chapel can be reserved for wedding cars.
Many celebratory options are possible and for those seeking to make the day their own, this is the ideal venue. You can do the lot yourselves or ask us for help as Anne, our wedding planner, is available to provide you with information, advice and contacts.
To hire this venue for a basic wedding package will cost as little as £650, and you have exclusive use of the venue from 4pm the day before, the day of the wedding (an evening reception will cost you a little more) and time to clear up the day after
The Old Chapel Centre is a place of worship, the service will be conducted by a URC Minister, who will work with you to tailor your service in line with the christian faith. With scope to choose your own readings and music your wedding will be a legal, fully licensed ceremony, making the occasion a unique experience for each couple who get married in our lovely building.
Please note that the Old Chapel Centre is NOT licensed for Civil Ceremonies (legally approved marriage ceremonies with no religious content, conducted by a registrar)
