Plan your wedding at the little Saratoga Church

Built in 1989 and named after a prominent rural Stanhope Church founded in 1889, the Little Saratoga Church is complete with belfry, bell and stained glass windows designed by Grandma Fern. The stained glass windows depict two old testament stories and two new testament stories and contain the names of the Darwin’s four children.

The 19 key reed organ plays melodious hymns as the organist has a double responsibility – she must pump as well as play the appropriate keys.

The church seats 8, and is large enough for small, small weddings. There have been twelve weddings at the little church with as many as 200 guests.

During a regular visit, enjoy the wedding of Jessa and Andrew Johnsons being staged in 1906 style Country Relics Village
