We didn't pay anything for our church wedding. I think if you are a member of the congregation that makes the difference. We made a donation for the heating and lighting (we married in December) and gave gifts to the organist and stewards.
If you really want a church wedding why not try a different denomination? You'd be surprised how some churches actually WANT you to get married there, and therefore won't rip you off.
....and yes, I think this church where you have got these prices are really having a laugh at your expense as a non-church goer.
