Weddings at SCC
We welcome you to Southwick Congregational Church as you consider your wedding plans! We invite you to prayerfully consider whether you would like to be married at our historic church. The first step is to call the church office at 413.569.6362 or email Lyn Casey, our church secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org), to determine if the date you desire is available.
Bart Cochran, Pastor
Rev. Cochran performs wedding ceremonies as time and scheduling permit. Under certain circumstances, additional officiating ministers may be approved to perform the wedding in partnership with Rev. Cochran. Please call the church (413.569.6362) to determine Rev. Cochran's availability, and set up an appointment to meet with him.
Roberta Kowal, Choir Director/Organist
Ms. Kowal is in charge of all musical arrangements for weddings at Southwick Congregational Church. In conjunction with the officiating minister, she has final approval over the music for the wedding service. The goal is to insure the selection of music is suitable for the worship of God, whether it be organ, vocal or instrumental. You should contact the Ms. Kowal at the earliest possible date in order to confirm her availability for the wedding (413.562.9577). She has first priority for playing all weddings. If other arrangements are desired, any substitute organist and/or performers must be approved by her. Recorded music is generally not permitted.
Ms. Kowal has many years of experience playing for weddings of all denominations and faiths. She will be delighted to meet with you to discuss and offer suggestions concerning the music for your wedding.
Vocal and/or instrumental soloists often have a part in the service. Southwick Congregational Church has a number of fine soloists and instrumentalists who are available for weddings. Ms. Kowal will be happy to assist you in securing a qualified soloist. A competent guest soloist is also welcome.
Karen Brzezinski, Wedding Coordinator
As the date of your wedding approaches, our wedding coordinator, Karen Brzezinski, will contact you. She will arrange a time to meet with you to familiarize you with the church and provide you with information on the use of the sanctuary and a schedule of fees. She will also explain the church's policy regarding photography and videography during the wedding service, and other issues that may arise.
