Weddings and Baptisms
The Margate Community Church is located two blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and offers two different settings for weddings. We have a spacious sanctuary that can seat over 250 people, or a Chapel which can handle up to 50 people for smaller and more intimate wedding ceremonies. Both locations are provided with central air-conditioning and full organ music. In addition, we can compliment a wedding with our beautiful garden courtyard which is often used for after-wedding pictures.
Any wedding held at the Margate Community Church must include the minister, but outside clergy may be invited to share in the wedding ceremony.
Since a wedding is a sacred and important life experience, we ask every couple to follow a few simple rules that help to govern a wedding at the Margate Community Church and that help to make your time with us memorable and meaningful.

Baptisms at the Margate Community Church are both a celebration of life and a commitment of faith. You do not have to be a member of the Margate Community Church to have your child baptized.
Baptisms are available either during our 10:00 am Sunday Morning Worship or in the more private setting of our Broll Chapel. The Broll Chapel holds up to 45 people. Scheduling for all Baptisms must be made through our Church Office.
Baptisms held during our Sunday Morning Worship become a part of the larger service and are celebrated in front of the whole congregation. Baptisms in the Broll Chapel (or in the main Sanctuary at times other than the Sunday Morning Worship), can be scheduled for later on Sunday mornings, and occasionally for Saturdays, and depend upon the availability of our ministers.
Baptisms are an expression of thankfulness by the parents for God’s blessing of life, they also recognize that God’s presence in every life is crucial for our fullness as a human being, and are a formal welcoming of the child into the universal community of faith we call the Christian Church.
