First Parish in Concord is a sacred space and an historic site, welcoming our congregation and staff, as well as visitors and guests. We are a busy venue, relying on church groups, event coordinators, and responsible users to ensure events run smoothly and the premises are well cared for.

First Parish (FP) facilities are available primarily for church functions. Our space may also be rented by guest organizations whose mission is consistent with that of First Parish.

Parishioners or guests using the facilities are asked to please set up and break down tables and chairs and follow the “Building Opening and Closing Procedures and Checklist.” This list is posted at each room and exterior door and available by email upon request from Bruce Davidson, Facilities Manager.

Please refer to Facilities Use Guidelines and Fees for more detailed information.
