Events held here would definitely be memorable ones. Be awed by the spiral staircase and the 2-tone brick walls as you head up to the chapel. Inside you will find a high ceiling accentuated by dark wooden beams that serve as natural acoustics. The overhead ceiling fans help cool the venue during warm days, likewise the tall windows upfront and on one side. Windows take you to a mix of two eras in 1 space (the old & the new). NOTE: The space has cooling and heating capabilities (i.e., air conditioning and heater). Spacious, yet favorable for smaller production or on-location photo shoots. A stage and pulpit are ready for any speaking engagement. An upright piano is readily available. In the evening, round crystal light fixtures showcase this venue, giving it an amazing ambiance. An ideal venue for a media production, community gathering, ceremony, class series, meeting, book club, celebration, and more. Virtual sharing is encouraged in the space, and social distancing is practiced.

Langford Warren designed this Gothic English Sanctuary. The architect of the chapel was a Swedenborgian and Dean of Harvard's School of Architecture. The church was one of the first in the country to welcome marriages between couples from different ethnicities. It was in the 1970s that the church started accepting marriages between couples of different faiths. In the early 2000s, the church was one of the first to allow same-sex marriages before this was legalized by the Supreme Court.

We enjoyed working with this space! Our coordinator on the day of the event, Tonya, was very helpful. It’s more expensive than some spaces in the area but definitely served our needs well and was worth it.
