Bride and Groom cutting cake in the Barn RoomFirst Parish in Cambridge has rooms of various sizes and configurations available for rent. Our interconnected historic buildings create an inviting place to hold lectures, concerts, meetings, conferences, trainings, weddings, parties, and other events. We are convenient to public transportation; spaces are wheel chair accessible via elevator with recently renovated space in our Meetinghouse for wheelchair users.

First Parish facilities are not available to groups who advocate the use of violence, or discriminate explicitly or implicitly against any race, gender, sexual orientation, religious or ethnic group. We expect people attending events held at our facility to interact politely and respectfully with all other events or organizations which may be meeting concurrently within our building.
