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.

Who will help us plan our wedding?

The team at Collective Concepts are here to help you plan your special day. 

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. Service of your beverages will be provided by the Collective Concepts team and is included in each wedding package. 


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, the cost of venue hire of The Little Chapel for an elopement is enough to fund 15 sessions of child play therapy.

Can we view The Little Chapel?


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

The Home & Family Society's counselling services operate from the building during the week, so they cannot accommodate drop-in visits.

How many people can The Little Chapel hold?

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

What time can I get married at The Little Chapel?

The Home & Family Society's counselling services operate from the building during the week, so weddings on weekdays cannot be booked until after 5pm. 

Weddings on weekends are able to be booked in for any time. 

Can we have a sit-down meal?


The Little Chapel can host sit down meals for up to 50 guests in a marquee in the courtyard. 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.
