Building Use Info

Thank you for your interest in using space at First Church in Cambridge. FCC offers beautiful, handicapped-accessible spaces for your concert, reception, wedding or meeting. The Sixth meeting house of the First Church in Cambridge, built in 1871, is a stone building at the corner of Garden and Mason Streets.

The exterior of the building is an example of the early Gothic revival period, while the sanctuary interior is eclectic with Victorian, Byzantine, and contemporary elements.

The building is not only the focus for a worshiping congregation, but also functions as a center for the surrounding Cambridge community, housing a pre-school, homeless shelter, and other compatible activities.
