The First Church in Belmont Unitarian Universalist offers an enchanting location, rich in history, for your special event. Our Sanctuary and Parish Hall are available for wedding ceremonies, receptions, and other events. We are conveniently located at 404 Concord Avenue near the town center in Belmont, Massachusetts.
The Parish Hall and Sanctuary can each accommodate up to 175 guests. The Parish Hall, air-conditioned in the summer, features floor to ceiling windows, skylights and a beautiful oak floor, producing an airy and bright ambiance, whether the day is sunny or cloudy. The hall can easily accommodate sit-down dinner for 175 or a buffet-style dinner for 150 guests, more guests if standing and dining casually. Catering or a more informal potluck dinner can be cooked or assembled using the commercial-style brand-new kitchen on the first floor, just a few feet from the sanctuary and the Parish Hall.
The Upper Hall, immediately outside the sanctuary, can accommodate easels of family photos, additional small round tables/chairs for casual dining, or additional tables where you can array hors d'oeuvres, gifts, or place cards, or it can be used as a special space for cutting the wedding cake, additional floral displays or ice sculpture.
We have a variety of small classrooms that are perfect for meetings and Scouting troops.
The church is located adjacent to the town's common set with a miniature yellow and white house, originally the ticket kiosk for Belmont's train station. The First Church in Belmont is in Belmont, Mass. eight miles west of Boston-Cambridge. The church is located 10 minutes from the Belmont exits on Route 2 (Pleasant St.-Route 60 exit) and 15 minutes from the Massachusetts Turnpike-I-90 (Newton Corner exit).
