Rentals

Our building offers a variety of spaces for your event. Our main gathering space, the Upper Assembly Hall, is free of religious artwork or icons. A clean, crisp mid-century space for your event, it seats upwards of 400 with spectacular views of the Minneapolis skyline, Walker Art Center, and Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.

It has excellent acoustics for live music presentations. The Upper Assembly Hall has a state of the art sound and lighting system as well as video and projection capabilities to livestream your event. There are stage extension platforms and choral risers as well as a podium for staging variety. Two very fine instruments housed on the stage are our Holtkamp organ and the 7-foot Steinway grand piano. 

The Upper Assembly Hall is located just inside the main entry at 900 Mount Curve Avenue. There are accessible restrooms, a water fountain, and coat room on the same level.

From a small group in our Library that seats 15 people with views of the Minneapolis skyline, to a sit-down dinner for 175 in our Lower Assembly Hall, we have a space for your group. Our Dietrich Room faces a courtyard and is perfect for a board meeting or lectures for up to 50 people. Our Chalice Room surrounds you in walnut, brick, and glass, and seats 75. Our outdoor spaces include a patio adjacent to the Lower Assembly Hall; it’s perfect for enjoying a beverage or roasting marshmallows by the fire.

What about food?

A shared meal is the centerpiece of many celebrations. In our building we have two kitchens available for your event preparation. The main kitchen is connected to the Lower Assembly Hall and is a full commercial kitchen with stainless steel appliances. It regularly serves meals for 175 people. We also have a galley-style kitchen connected to the Dietrich Room and very useful for breakfast and lunch meetings, rehearsal dinners, and business meetings. It’s also a lovely space for a cocktail party for up to 50. You are free to use any licensed caterer for your event. Need recommendations? We have them!
