*Please note: As part of our ongoing efforts to preserve historic St. Mary Aldermanbury, the church will unfortunately be unavailable for weddings and other group reservations in 2024 due to construction.

The Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, is a seventeenth-century English church located within the heart of mid-Missouri. This church once stood in the center of London, England, where Nazi bombs gutted it during the Blitz of World War II. It is the only building in the United States designed by renowned English architect Sir Christopher Wren, who designed and built St. Paul's Cathedral and many other London churches after the Great Fire of 1666.

Westminster College brought this majestic church back to life for a new era to remember times gone by and as a memorial to Sir Winston Churchill's visit to Westminster College in 1946. Below the church is America's National Churchill Museum, a world-class museum that guests to your wedding may also enjoy visiting.
