With a sense of history and style, The Old St Thomas Chapel is the only heritage wedding chapel of it's kind in the greater Sydney area. Couples can bring their own civil celebrant, minister or pastor to perform their wedding or be referred to others by The Old St Thomas Chapel's friendly co-ordinators.
The Chapel welcomes everyone from all backgrounds, beliefs, denominations, age, sexuality and creed. We believe that everyone is equal and should be treated as one. Every wedding is special!
With a seating capacity of 140 people, the Chapel is large enough to accommodate most weddings, but still very intimate for smaller gatherings.
No need to worry about the weather, The Old St Thomas Chapel is a perfect venue in wet weather. You can use the grounds and Chapel for your photography including The Old Hall located behind the Chapel. This building was built in 1839 and is the most significant surviving building in Narellan. Functions at The Old St Thomas Chapel are booked adjacent to each other and ceremonies can be booked for any time of the day or evening.
