Established in 1840, First Presbyterian is Galveston's FIRST church, a vibrant community of believers connected to one another in ministry and to our local and global neighbors through mission.
First Presbyterian Church is a special wedding venue where beautiful weddings have been held since 1840. For your wedding or reception, please consider an amazing historic church on a beautiful tropical island in the Gulf of Mexico.
The towers of the historic church rise above the heart of old Galveston at the corner of Church and 19th Streets. This prime location will place your wedding within a few blocks of the Strand — and a short drive from resort hotels - accessible to out-of-town guests.
Our newly remodeled Sanctuary is an elegant setting for weddings. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the building was constructed by famed Texas architect Nicholas Clayton in 1889.
Seating up to 400, the Sanctuary's breath-taking beauty includes stained-glass windows designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. First Presbyterian Church of Galveston offers you a memorable Christian wedding.
