Welcome! At Kirk in the Hills, weddings are joyful occasions for the worship of God and the celebration of love for the couple to be married. We understand that our building and campus make a beautiful setting for weddings; however, we are first and foremost a community of faith designed to support parishioners on their spiritual journey through Worship, Formation and Mission. Therefore, we reserve the use of the church and grounds for those who meet the following criteria:• The bride or groom must be an active, worshipping member of Kirk in the Hills for at least one year prior to the wedding date.–or–• The bride or groom must be a baptized Christian and the child or grandchild of a current contributing and active member of Kirk in the Hills. No other relationships will be considered.
We take marriage very seriously at Kirk in the Hills. “Marriage is a gift God has given to all humankind for the well-being of the entire human family” (Book of Order, W-4.9001).
A wedding service is a worship service, and, therefore, we approach each wedding with the same level of thoughtfulness and sanctity as a worship service on Sunday morning. We do not acknowledge the latest fads or fashions, preferring to honor God and God’s people with a traditional service that is classic and timeless.
If you meet the above criteria and wish to marry at Kirk in the Hills, please proceed to the Wedding Inquiry Form (link below) and complete the application. Once your application is received, reviewed for accuracy and approved, a Kirk staff member will contact you to set up an initial appointment with one of our pastors.
Photography Note: We receive many requests from couples being married elsewhere to take wedding photos on our grounds. We understand why you might wish to do so; however, the privilege of wedding photography is reserved for those couples being married at Kirk in the Hills.
