Upper Assembly Hall

upper assembly hallWe use this space for Sunday morning Assemblies, but it is popular for weddings, memorial services and other meetings as well (it would be called the Sanctuary elsewhere). Pews on the main floor and in the balcony can seat up to 500 people. The large raised stage includes our Steinway grand piano, and the organ console as well as a movable lectern.

The Upper Assembly Hall is immediately accessible from the Mount Curve entrance. On the same floor you will find the elevator serving all levels, gender-neutral restrooms, and the coat room.

The hall exemplifies “Mid-Century Modern” architectural design with its open space and large windows. Other decor is minimal and tasteful. The window wall on the north side overlooks downtown Minneapolis and the Walker Art Center.

The Upper Assembly Hall has an excellent sound system with a 24-channel mixing console, a variety of microphones, and recording and playback capability.

Other Spaces
