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 be easily arranged to hold 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 lectern microphone, a hand held (or stand held) mic and two wireless microphones.



We provide a Wedding Coordinator, who will assist you with preferred 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 to officiate, or you may ask to meet with our pastor, Rev. Laurie Manning. She will offer three counseling sessions and then two more to prepare your personal ceremony. You are also welcome to use our Music Director or bring in musicians of your choice.

Our facilities are ideal, our prices are reasonable and our restrictions are few.

Our ceremony was held at Skyline Community Church. The setting was Beautiful! As a bride I could not ask for anything more perfect. I thought parking would be a problem but it turned out to not be the case. I loved the bride quarters, which was just across the way from the church. My photographer was able to take pre-wedding photos there as well. Overall a wonderful experience. I donated my draping to the church.

Skyline Church is truly a beautiful ceremony venue. The church met my desire to have an indoor ceremony with an outdoor feel--the entire back wall is comprised of floor to ceiling windows. I appreciated that we were not only able to use the sanctuary for the ceremony, but the lovely grounds to take pictures and have a mini outdoor reception after our ceremony and before our banquet. Skyline has a large gazebo where our string quartet played during the mini-reception and a large courtyard and a grassy area for guests to congregate after the ceremony. There are other nice touches: the church bell was rung to begin and end the ceremony; behind the church is a lovingly kept labyrinth nestled in a wooded area where our families were able to gather to take pictures.

The church's wedding coordinator, Lee Rutter, is very responsive, professional, helpful, and kind. She met with me several times before the wedding and presided over the wedding rehearsal. It is clear that Lee, and other Skyline congregation members, truly care about the church and the grounds and work hard to keep it looking beautiful.

I will write a lengthier review later, but wanted to say that Lee is a pleasure to work with. The church is beautiful and has many different ammenities from a large changing room for both the men (with attached bathroom) and the women (detached bathroom), a zen garden, a gazebo, a bell for ringing, organ, is pet and petal friendly, and the view is so unique and beautiful. They only book one wedding per day so you are not rushed. The drive up to the church is beautiful and it takes you away from the city. I am so glad we got married here. Even our pastor who grew up on the street above the church had no idea how beautiful the view was from the santuary.

We held our ceremony at Skyline and it was a beautiful location! In fact our friends are still commenting on how gorgeous it was. I loved that they allowed us to bring in our own officiant. The coordinator there is a very sweet lady who was always available and extremely helpful. One small thing, hire your own AV coordinator to manage your music. Theirs seemed to have no idea what he was doing.
