Emmanuel Episcopal Church




Emmanuel Church is listed on the Federal Register of Historic Places and is one of Connecticut’s oldest houses of worship. This special venue is available to host your special wedding day. The pure white exterior is without embellishment and the only ornamentation in its 100-seat interior is a single stained-glass window and brass chandelier. When times were tough, there was thought to selling the building but the church was revitalized in the early 1900s and by 1987, a parish hall, kitchen and indoor bathroom were added. This small country church has a delightful organ. The free-standing self-contained case is made of white oak with hand-carved butternut pipe shades, which are gilded with 22 karat gold leaf. The natural keys are covered with ebony and the sharps are rosewood and plated with cow bone. There are 8 stops of metal pipes which are of tin-lead alloy, that provide an amazing versatility of sounds, for your wedding ceremony. The peaceful memorial garden of Emmanuel Church is a beautiful place for meditation and prayer and creates the perfect backdrop of tranquil greenery. Celebrate your romance at this historic venue and enjoy Emmanuel Episcopal Church for you wedding.
