It is our great pleasure to welcome you to First Church in Boston.

Founded in 1630, First Church has been a spiritual presence in Boston for over 380 years. Our Unitarian Universalist tradition has long been a source of welcome, hospitality and openness to our neighbors, our city and to all.

It is in keeping with that spirit that First Church makes its venues available to the community to celebrate art, culture, dance, music, and the human spirit.

Regardless of what type of event you are planning, the diversity of our space provides the flexibility to adapt to the specific needs and vision of your group.

Whether it is intimate meeting for a small group or a performance or wedding for 350, First Church has the ideal location for your event.

Our Sanctuary (pictured above), which is known for its excellent acoustics and unique architectural style, accommodates up to 350 people. As the primary worship space for First Church services, the Sanctuary works equally well as a space for quiet reflection or as a venue for a musical or theatre performance.

The Hale Chapel provides a unique back drop for musical, theatre, or spoken word performances, round table discussions and many others.
