Is The Little Chapel religious?


The Little Chapel was originally part of the Community of the Sacred Name, an Anglican Convent.

It is now owned by Home & Family and is non-denominational, and can accommodate weddings and civil unions of any type.

Can we supply our own alcohol?


Yes, The Little Chapel is currently an unlicensed venue which means that all alcohol must be provided by the couple.

We are in the process of becoming a licensed venue, so the ability to bring your own alcohol will change in the near future.

How will the money from our wedding help families in Christchurch?


As The Little Chapel is owned by the Home & Family Society, all profits generated by weddings and functions at The Little Chapel go directly back to the charity towards all of their services.

For example, $1380.00 (the cost of the hire of the chapel) is enough to fund 12 sessions of child play therapy.

Can we view The Little Chapel?


Yes, The Little Chapel can be viewed by appointment only.

Our counselling services operate from the building during the week, so we cannot accommodate drop-in visits.

How many people can The Little Chapel hold?

The Little Chapel can fit 50 people seated in the pews.

Can we have a sit-down meal?


The Little Chapel is not equipped to host sit-down meals for large groups.

Smaller wedding groups (maximum of 20 guests) can be accommodated at tables in the lounge room.

The Little Chapel and our lounge area are available to hire for meetings, conferences and other events.  Discounted rates are available for community groups and charities.  Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
