WAMS’ building, the onetime Central Congregational Church, is situated in the Salisbury Cultural District at the intersection of Grove Street and Institute Road. It was designed by Stephen Earle and is one of Worcester’s architectural masterpieces. It contains a treasury of stained glass designed by Sarah Wyman Whitman, the first woman in America to be recognized as a leading figure in the world of decorative arts. It is home also to the Central Massachusetts Housing Alliance, United Congregational Church which gifted the building to WAMS in an act of unprecedented generosity, and the Central Area Office of the United Church of Christ.

WAMS has created building use policies that welcome organizations whose social and cultural programs are congruent with our own efforts to lift up human dignity and promote social justice, to use our space as a venue for meetings and conferences. WAMS’ parking lot is located directly across from the building where Institute Road meets Grove Street, making WAMS an ideal location for such events.

We have established a fee schedule that varies depending upon the nature of the event.

Our available space includes the following:
