In 2012, we had the honour and privilige to acquire the historical St Andrews Church in Wingewarra Street.
St Andrew’s will continue to play a pivotal role in the Dubbo community as a non-denominational Chapel for funeral and memorial services, after-funeral functions, weddings, and bereavement seminars, while we also continue to host regular community-focused Outreaches, Seminars and Conventions.
The facility is blessed with a homely, yet benign ambience that succinctly pervades every nook and cranny, as well as providing an unsurpassed spaciousness, under the influence of which, clients can celebrate their special occasion in a naturally free-flowing atmosphere.
St Andrews has a link-way which can be utilised for larger services and an excellently equipped modern kitchen and Hall for after service refreshments. There is even the ability for patrons to enjoy a sundrenched garden environment for refreshments and reflections whilst partaking of tea, scones and jam in the traditional quaintness of the courtyard which leads off the link way to the rear of the building. Coupled with these innately inherent features is year round comfort focused centralised air conditioning and state of the art audio visual outlets and displays, sensitively located in strategic locations throughout the complex.
The Chapel is the ideal venue for funeral and cremation services where the family choose to have a private burial or cremation prior to the Memorial Service. Families are able to use the hall facilities for the refreshments after the service which removes the stress of having to travel to another location. By utilising St Andrews Chapel, families are able to hold the entire service in the one location. The Chapel itself is able to seat approximately 280 people, the linkway another 100 and the hall approximately another 100, making it ideal for smaller or larger services.
We also hold our regular grief and bereavement seminars in St Andrews. The seminars are held 3 to 4 times per year and are always well attended.
St Andrews Chapel also has a wonderful tradition of hosting wedding celebrations. From the beautiful surrounds of the chapel itself to the stunning architecture, St Andrew’s Chapel is a wonderful place to celebrate your special day. We are able to assist you with venue hire, bell toll, stunning floral arrangements for both the church and bridal party, manage music for the ceremony, staff for your assistance, rehearsal ceremony, dressing room for your use, and provide refreshments for the bridal party between photos and the reception.
