Old St Paul’s offers an exquisite and peaceful setting for your child’s christening.

Baptismal font

Old St Paul’s offers an exquisite and peaceful setting for your child’s christening and welcome into the church community.

The iconic Wellington building is a consecrated, non-denominational church, ideal for a religious christening or a naming ceremony.

Especially fitting for use at such an auspicious occasion is the beautiful stone baptismal font, which was shipped from England and is one of the original furnishings of the church.

Hiring Old St Paul’s for a christening/naming ceremony

Old St Paul’s does not have a resident clergy so you will need to organise your own minister or celebrant.  Celebrant fees are not included in the Old St Paul’s christening fee.

Our christening package includes:

  • The hire of Old St Paul’s and grounds for one hour. Please note the hire time of the church and grounds begins 15 minutes before the start of the ceremony
  • Use of the historic font
  • Professionally arranged seasonal flowers
  • Beautiful stained glass windows and the glowing wooden interior of this architectural masterpiece for your perfect photo backdrop
  • Convenient central location – only minutes from the waterfront, transport hub, CBD and popular reception venues.
