Download and print the application form and submit them at the BBTC General Office on Level 2. Please apply at least 6 months before your wedding date.

Application for use of church premise


For baptized Christians who are registered members of Bethesda (Bedok-Tampines) Church. Eligible couples must have been involved in one of our cell groups for least 1 year, before applying for a church wedding. Wedding must also be the first for the couple except in the case of a widow or widower. At the point of wedding, couple must have completed all sessions of the Pre-Marital Course.

More details on the Pre-Marital Course

Should a couple not meet any of the above criteria, they must inform the church and the appointed solemnizer regarding their inability to comply. Other course of action may then apply. Couples are encouraged to speak to the Pastor in charge of Family Ministry should they need clarification on any of the above pre-requisite.

Note: Solemnization versus Solemnization Without Signing of Marriage Certificate

Couples are to note the difference between the two and highlight to the solemnizer upon engaging him should his services be that for a Solemnization Without Signing of Marriage Certificate ceremony instead of a solemnization.

Solemnization refers to the entire wedding process by which the solemnizer officiates both the religious and civil/legal (ROM) part of the wedding.

  • The religious part will include the 3 part ceremony of going through the ordinances of marriage, consent to marry, vows plus exchange of rings and communion .
  • The civil/legal (ROM) part will be the signing of the marriage certificate by the couple, their 2 witnesses and the solemnizer.

Solemnization Without Signing of Marriage Certificate refers to the wedding process whereby ONLY the religious part takes place. There is no signing of the marriage certificates during the wedding itself due to the fact that the couple has already signed the Marriage certificates prior to the wedding ceremony.

Couples are to note that Solemnization Without Signing of Marriage Certificate ceremonies are discouraged unless totally unavoidable. The onus of informing the solemnizer rests on the couple.


At the time of booking of church facilities, couples are to arrange through Ps Jerry Chia to ensure the availability of Solemiser to solemnise their marriage. BBTC Solemnisers are Ps Jerry Chia, Ps Andrew Tan, Ps Ng Hua Ken and Brother Jeffrey Goh. Couples are advised to give early notice so as to avoid disappointment. Request can be made via email or personally through Ps Jerry Chia for the assignment / booking of a church solemniser.

Upon the discretion and agreement between the 4 solemnisers, one will be assigned to solemnise. Choice of solemniser is not the prerogative of the couples but dependent on the schedules and availability of solemnisers.

Couples are to note that there will be no solemnisation by the church appointed solemnisers during the times when church services are in progress on Saturday and Sunday. For Saturday solemnisation, the ceremony must not end later than 12.00pm.

All external solemnisation must be subject to agreement by the external solemniser. As a practice, BBTC solemnisers will not perform solemnisation in other church venues unless venues in BBTC have been taken up or BBTC solemnisation/marriage rule applies.

Solemnisation on BBTC venue is only for first-time marriages. If wedding is not the first for one or both partners in marriage, couple must find external venues but may ask for a BBTC solemniser. This rule does not apply for the re-marriage of a widow/widower.

Should an external solemniser be appointed, couples are required to inform the church in advance.


It is the couples’ responsibility to check and comply with the necessary requirements of ROM regarding marriage procedures and not that of the church. Couples are to visit the website of ROM for details regarding the filing of marriage notice and the collection of the Certificate of Marriage and others. The necessary documents must be presented on the day of wedding so that solemnisation can proceed.


Notwithstanding the available time slots as stated below, couples are to check with church office to confirm that the slots are not taken up by other events on that day.
