Wendell Meetinghouse














Events at the Meetinghouse

Visit our Events Calendar and join us at a gathering soon! Upcoming – 7/11 Sound Journey with Nirmal Chandraratna (a real treat, he’s returning for the third time!) Also, save the date for the Friends of the Wendell Meetinghouse Annual Meeting on August 18.

This is YOUR regional community center! If you’re looking for space to hold an event, we’re ready to help you to make it happen.  With its open floor plan, flexible seating, good sound and reasonable rental rates, the Wendell Meetinghouse is a great event venue – we’d love to make you welcome.

And NEWS: The Wendell Meetinghouse is now part of Mass Cultural Council’s Card to Culture program!

Have You Seen the New Space?

With the help of the whole community — tradespeople, volunteers, and donors, we have rebuilt the Meetinghouse from the ancient posts and beams to the modern acoustic sound panels. Floors, walls, ceiling, wiring, insulation, windows, doors, stone steps and ADA entryway have all been updated and refinished – see more on recent renovations here.  Dating back to 1846, the Meetinghouse has a long history of service to Wendell and surrounding towns.  Now it’s ready for the next 175 years! 

Future Building Plans

Opening the doors to events in this beautiful space has been such a momentous achievement, but we know we need much more: running water, bathrooms, a sustainable heating/cooling system, a warming kitchen, performers’ green room, storage space, and a new roof and a fresh coat of outside paint.  We encourage you to learn more about future building improvement planning and how you can help to make these dreams come true!

Join the Volunteers

The Friends of the Wendell Meetinghouse, Inc. is a great community of volunteers who share a vision for developing the Meetinghouse as a vibrant community center.  Some of us serve on the Board, some on committees, and some show up for work parties – like polishing the old pews!  If you would like to help with events, building maintenance, curating photos on our website, helping us with outreach or other tasks, or joining a committee or the Board, let us know. We can’t do this without you!


Our financial fundraising continues to meet the goal of creating a code-compliant, functional, and attractive space, ready to open for events and activities. To help this vision become reality, head on over to our donations page with the button below.
