About Us

Thank you for your interest in Christ Church Neighborhood House as a venue for your wedding, reception, or both!

We offer two unique rooms for your celebration. At about 32’ x 72’, both spaces have a capacity of approximately 120 people for seated events. However, depending on table size and orientation it is possible to fit up to 150.

Neighborhood House Theater offers exposed brick walls, tall windows, and original hardwood floors. You will appreciate this space’s versatility as a fully-equipped theatrical venue and its complete offering of modern amenities.The Great Hall With its high ceiling and colonial details, this space is bright and welcoming.Full-bodied curtains can be pulled closed for privacy, or the large windows can provide a beautiful view of Christ Church. Due to the age of the building, this room does not have adequate air conditioning, so we do not recommend it for summer events.

Whole-Venue Rentals (of the Theater and Great Hall simultaneously) are also available at a reduced rate. This allows you to minimize your time traveling between venues and maximize your time celebrating with guests. The additional space can be used to stage a ceremony in one space and a reception in the other, or for activities such as cocktails and dancing, a kids zone, and more.

Please inquire about access to the garden, rooftop, and more!

Parking is available in metered spots on 2nd and 3rd streets, as well as in the Park America lot directly behind Neighborhood House. We will be happy to provide you with locations of additional nearby lots and garages.

  • My hubs and I eloped in London and held a reception about 6 months later with all of our friends and family at Neighborhood House. It was exactly what we were looking for in terms of space size, flexibility, budget and accommodation. The great thing about the space (we used the upstairs theater) is it's so customizable and has so much character — you can make it as simple or as extravagant as you want and the management won't push you one way or the other. It's in between a fully DIY space and a fully-managed space. You can select what services you want to bring in and what you want to do on your own (like music, cleaning, decorating, etc). Its location in Old City makes for incredible memories, photographs and other amenities. The staff were helpful, professional and responsive every step of the way. I rarely felt stressed or worried, if at all. In fact, it was actually FUN planning with CC Neighborhood House. You really can't find another space as unique and affordable in this part... Read more
