sanctuaryWe are happy to rent our facilities to groups and individuals — for meetings, parties, weddings and memorial services. Because we are a church, rentals are not permitted before 2:00 p.m. on Sundays. In addition, all rentals must conclude before 10:00 p.m., to allow for clean up.

Both the Sanctuary and Enoch Pratt Parish Hall are accessible to persons with limited mobility, except for the chancel and balcony. An elevator is available from street level to the sanctuary floor, Enoch Pratt Parish Hall and smaller rooms. An accessible bathroom is available. If your guests do require special accommodations to attend, please provide information about your requirements to us at least five business days in advance. More information can be found on our accessibility page.

Built in 1818, the sanctuary offers seating for 350 and is flanked by sparkling Tiffany windows on each side.  Above the alter is a Tiffany mosaic —a nod to the church’s Christian roots, it is a replication of Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper. At the rear, in the balcony, sits our melodic Henry Niemann organ. A large center aisle and two side aisles line four groups of pews. Steps lead up to the altar, podium and pulpit. Along with the organ, the sanctuary features a grand piano, harpsichord and smaller organ.

Centrally located in luxurious and historic Mt. Vernon, First Unitarian Church of Baltimore is convenient to some of the city’s most sought-after wedding reception venues, including Chase Court, Clarion Hotel Peabody Court, The Engineer’s Club, The Peabody Library and The Walters Art Museum.

The Enoch Pratt Parish Hall was named for prominent church member and Baltimore philanthropist, Enoch Pratt. Pratt Hall and the adjoining religious education building house church offices, rooms for religious education classes and meetings and a hall for lectures, dinners and other events. During summer months, Sunday services are held in this building, rather than the sanctuary.

The Enoch Pratt Parish Hall is a lovely location for receptions and parties. A full kitchen is available for catering staging (but not for food preparation). Secluded at the end of a hall, and with easy access to the sanctuary, is a bride’s dressing room.
