The Sanctuary at Skyline is like having an outdoor wedding – only better because everyone is comfortable! The soaring wood paneled ceiling and spectacular glass wall are impressive by day and becomes absolutely stunning at night; the feeling is intimate and personal.
Contemporary in design, the Sanctuary features comfortable chairs and a movable alter platform, allowing for various seating configurations accommodating up to 250 seated guests. It can also accommodate a more intimate group.
Our pipe organ remains one of the few pneumatic organs in use in the Bay Area. This instrument may be played by our Music Director or your qualified organist. The sound is dramatic, to say the least, and adds a tremendous depth to your music selections. Also available is a grand piano. The Sanctuary also can be arranged for a harpist, choir or string quartet. Although this space is acoustically alive, we do have microphones available for use; which include a lapel microphone and three hand-held (or stand held) wireless microphones.
We provide a Wedding Coordinator, who will assist you with vendors, organize the rehearsal and support you the day of your wedding – to make sure the Sanctuary is perfect, light and temperature controls are set and that everything runs smoothly on your special day.
We value all faith backgrounds and welcome your pastor, priest, rabbi or other spiritual leader to officiate. Also, Pastor Laurie Manning of Skyline is available to create a special, personalized ceremony for couples of all faiths and backgrounds. You are welcome to use our former Music Director, Benjamin Mertz, or bring in musicians of your choice. Having a friend or relative who is musically talented play for you is a wonderful way to add another layer of meaning to your wedding day.
Our facilities are ideal, our prices are reasonable and our restrictions are few.
Your wedding at Skyline includes our lovely 2+ acre setting, with lots of parking, a wedding coordinator, 6+ hours for rehearsal and ceremony, separate spacious changing rooms for bride and groom and our lovely gardens for pictures. Our unique bell tower bell is often rung by couple to start their ceremony. Skyline Church is quiet and private – the perfect setting for your magical day!
You can reach our Wedding Coordinator at (510) 679-7437 to arrange a tour of the Sanctuary, changing rooms and gardens – or come to a 10:00 am Sunday service and see the setting, hear the acoustics and envision it set up for the day of your wedding!
