You are only able to make a booking via the online form above. Once you make a booking you will be sent a confirmation email with a booking reference number. Your booking will then be processed, and we will be in contact with you to allocate an Elder to your event approximately 7 days prior to your event date. Please do not try to contact us before then.
To help us manage the influx of event bookings, we ask that you do not contact us about your booking until an Elder has been allocated to your event, which will occur approximately 7 days prior to your event date. Alternatively, if your event is less than 4 days away you can email us back with ‘URGENT’ in the subject line and we will get back to you as soon as possible – we thank you for your patience and understanding during this busy time.
