Searching for a place where you can engage your audience with your social media posts and make them more likable? It is an awesome sanctuary at a Dupont church and a magnificent venue for any event. You will surely be blown away by the ambiance of this space suitable for any occasion. The Church of the Holy City has some really beautiful features, like a winding staircase and stained-glass windows. The initiative for these was taken by Boston Society of Arts & Crafts charter members-architects who collaborated with artisans to create gargoyles outside. The stained-glass windows let in plenty of natural light. Pendant lights hang overhead for nighttime events.The space illustrates Biblical stories from Creation to Revelation with well-crafted stained-glass windows by leading art glass studios, Lamb and Tiffany. Its pews and aisle make for a striking entrance, and its stone walls and adorned wood beams offer a wonderful acoustic setting.

Langford Warren and architect Paul J. Pelz supervising it's construction. The builder was Spier & Co., and Lane & Meinati oversaw stonework - ensuring that this monument would be preserved for generations to come. H. 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.

Peter L. booked a production for 6 people
We rented this beautiful historic space to use the piano and organ while staying in DC. Sholanda, the staff member who worked with us, was incredibly gracious and accommodating. She was very flexible with scheduling, and was able to share some of the building’s history, current use, and future with us. This place is a gem.
Sara F. booked a video interview for 9 people
Shalonda was extremely helpful and friendly. We booked the Church for some sit down interviews for a documentary. We would definitely book here again. We were filming on trash collection day so there was some noise from that pick up, but no more than you would get filming anywhere in a city that isn't a soundstage. On site parking was limited but we were able to pull in to unload and find spots in surrounding area for our small crew. Recommend!
