Second Unitarian Church is a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association and has been a voice for liberal religion in Chicago since 1857. Unitarian Universalism is an open and affirming faith. We welcome those who wish to bless their lives in a ceremony marking their lifelong commitment to each other.
Our building is designed in the Prairie style of architecture. The sanctuary is warm and inviting, with brick walls, a high beamed ceiling, and stained glass windows featuring a neutral wreath motif. The simple chancel lends itself to a wide variety of decorations.
We offer more than 1,900 square feet of special event space in 3 rooms that can accommodate up to 200 guests: our sanctuary, the adjacent Palmer Room, and our remarkable second story Loft.
Our open floor plan allows you to configure the space as you wish. Other features include:
- Kitchen facilities
- Two grand pianos – one in the Sanctuary and one in the Loft
- New sound system with wireless and stationary mics and recording capability
