About Oaks Pioneer Church

Oaks Pioneer Church is a beautifully restored unique venue, ideal for intimate weddings with fewer than 75 guests (excluding wedding party). It is situated in the Sellwood Neighborhood next door to Sellwood Park overlooking the Willamette River. It has a pipe organ for use with weddings and other celebrations as well as a spacious changing room, restroom, and some limited clothing storage. We are handicap accessible. Please visit the church website at oakspioneerchurch.org to view the interior of the church as well as see photos of the exterior and gardens.

The church adorns the bluff above Old Oaks Park and the Willamette River. We are nestled among meticulously kept grounds with a rose garden, rhododendrons, Japanese maples, and magnolias, all shaded by towering oak and elm trees. A brick-lined, pebblestone pathway guides guests through the main doors and into the church’s high ceiling interior. Stunning wood craftsmanship reaches from floor to ceiling with antique brass chandeliers adding a warm glow to the ambiance. Stained glass windows are an elegant backdrop to the raised alter, and a period pot-belly stove in the back corner of the little church warms the space on cooler days and evenings .

Oaks Pioneer Church is non-denominational and welcomes all visitors regardless of race, gender, national origin, color, ethnicity, religion, disability, or sexual orientation.

The church is community owned and operated by the Sellwood-Moreland Improvement League (SMILE) and proceeds from the church go directly to the building's maintenance and community efforts. SMILE also owns and operates the nearby SMILE station.

The SMILE Station was the original fire station in the small city of Sellwood, Oregon, before it was annexed into the greater Portland city limits. The Station has been updated and modernized with a commercial-class kitchen and tables and chairs to accommodate 100 guests for receptions, meetings, and a variety of celebrations. Food and alcoholic beverages are permitted on the site. It's a perfect venue for wedding receptions, located about four blocks from the church.

For more information about our services, please call our business manager at 503.233.1497. We look forward to answering any questions you have!

    Beautiful church for a ceremony

    We were so lucky to have found this beautiful church. It was perfect for our small ceremony. We had a zoom wedding and a few people there with us. They just got WiFi and it helped us put on the zoom to share with all of our loved ones who weren’t able to attend.
