Pastoral Services

Reverend Peter Church is an ordained Pastor who has been in full-time ministry for more than 50 years. During that time he has provided many sacramental and personal services and ceremonies. He performs personalized liturgical and non-denominational Christian ceremonies. Rev. Church will ensure a memorable event which will be enjoyed by you and your guests. The ceremonies are meticulously planned to make sure your event is exactly what you expected, and reflects you individually or as a couple or family.

For any events or ceremonies, Rev. Church has access to a delightful Chapel on the South Bank of the St. Johns River which has additional separate space for a reception. There is a modest rental fee for the use of the facility and the amount depends on the occasion.

Rev. Church looks forward to working with you in planning an event that will have life time memories for all who attend.


A phone call to Rev. Church will help you decide the how, what, where or why about getting married. A consultation will help you decide if you want him to perform your ceremony. He will then meet with you to discuss the details of your wedding. Having “tied the knot” for many couples over the years, Rev. Church can answer all your questions in detail.

A full service wedding will include:

  • One personal initial consultation
  • The wedding rehearsal. He will work with your wedding coordinator if you have one.
  • You must obtain a marriage license prior to the ceremony. Rev. Church will process the marriage certificate and forward it to the Registrar of the county.
  • If requested, Rev. Church will attend your wedding reception.

The suggested honorarium for a full service wedding as outlined above is $500.
