A Home for Artists

Affordable space for rehearsals, performances and more

Through the Subsidized Rental program, Christ Church Neighborhood House offers subsidized rates to artists, nonprofits, and community groups.

Christ Church is not simply a venue, but a partner.

Neighborhood House was built in 1915 to serve the residents of Old City. By the late 1990s, it had become an artistic hub that drew in local creatives who were charmed by its flexibility. Having hosted countless arts festivals and weddings, it is an inclusive venue that encourages people from all walks of life to pay a visit.
