The Little Church stands at the top of Spring Hill.
A charming timber building, weathered by over one hundred years, steeped in history; the traditional church and beautifully designed pavilion are tucked amongst ancient gum trees on the private two acre property.
St Mark’s Church of England was built on the site in Spring Hill in the 1890s.
The church was deconsecrated in 1959 and has since been privately owned. Now open to the public as part as the Spring Hill Peony Farm, it offers a beautiful venue for private functions, weddings and events.
Spring Hill is a quiet country hamlet, with stunning views, glorious sunsets and in Spring – as many peonies as you can wish for. The property suits a range of functions from weddings, ceremonies, birthdays and anniversary celebrations.
The church retains its original character, whilst the new pavilion has a full kitchen, modern appliances and bathroom facilities. Catering is your choice though we are happy to share our local knowledge and expertise when it comes to local suppliers.
The Little Church is an eco venue. We have used as many sustainable practices as possible in the renovation and the everyday use of the site. The property has full stand alone solar power production, rainwater harvesting, waste water treatment on site, recycled waste, compost and a herb garden. The Pavilion is architecturally designed with passive solar energy gain, full insulation and cross ventilated cooling for summer.
The Little Church is available for morning, afternoon or early evening hire with the property vacated by 9pm at the latest.
The venue accommodates up to eighty (80) people. There is plenty of room for a marquee on the rear lawn. The property is fully fenced and has carparking on site.
Our rates are for the property hire only. You may engage caterers to arrange food and our website offers local suggestions. We can also arrange the whole event for you with food packages starting at $70 per head. For drinks and the serving of alcohol a liquor license can be obtained for the event.
Property hire prices start from $1800 for a wedding ceremony only at the Little Church and from $3600 for full property hire in 2017.
Call us to discuss your event and to arrange a time to view the property. Church viewings are twice a month. We can forward the next few viewing dates to you by email and you can make an appointment.
The Little Church is a very special country venue that exudes simple, understated elegance and offers a perfect backdrop to make your celebration truly unique.
