Meeting House

Our Meeting House is the center of worship at First Parish in Cohasset. Built in 1747, this classic New England church offers an intimate and elegant setting for that once-in-a-lifetime event. The Meeting House seats guests on the ground and in the balcony. Its classic architecture, simple but elegant interior finishes, and its ornate 19th century pulpit, it has become a popular location for weddings, as well as serving as a location in a major Hollywood film.

Trueblood Hall

Trueblood Hall, located in our Parish House, is a large function room that can be rented in conjunction with events in our meeting house or separately for functions and meetings. Trueblood hall has the capacity for 100 guests. The room is supported by a fully functioning caterer’s kitchen with two ovens and associated facilities.

Pricing and Arrangements

The current rate for rental of the meeting house is $700 plus plus event coordinator and custodial costs. Additional fees for our minister and organist/pianist would be required if their services are used.
