The Andover Newton Theological School has a lovely new chapel that we have rented for public speaking events. There are enormous windows and a completely modern facility. Unfortunately, the school is considering moving to New Haven and closing down this location.

I have attended continuing education events at Andover-Newton and loved the setting and the scholarship. Easy to get to from public transportation, just next to Newton.
