About the Venue: The Coral Gables Congregational Church building, as a whole, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The Sanctuary is fashioned in the Spanish-revival style of the 1920’s. It offers a setting that makes all the concerts very unique in that concert goers can see and hear artists, playing the world’s largest concert halls, in an intimate space. It makes for a very personal experience. With high wood ceilings, tile flooring, and stucco walls, the acoustics are as genuine and appealing to the ears as the beauty of the Sanctuary is to the eyes.

The Church was founded in 1923 and is the oldest established building and organization in Coral Gables. George Merrick, the architect and developer of Coral Gables was the son of a Congregational Minister. To honor his father he built this church which has continued to be not only an historic site but a significant force in this community. Known for it’s inspiring worship; outstanding music and arts program, a top notch early childhood center; and a bold and prophetic outreach program, the church has been a place of solace, sanctuary, and spiritual growth for many over the years.
