Liberti Center City is a historic church at 17th & Sansom Streets in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood of Center City Philadelphia. Our spaces – specifically our sanctuary and fellowship hall (“chapel”) – are available to be rented for a variety of special events, including Christian weddings and receptions.
Our 19th-century sanctuary seats approximately 750 people including the balcony and was recently renovated upon our church’s purchase of the building from First Baptist Church in 2014. The sanctuary is adorned on three sides with stained glass, ceiling paintings, a pipe organ, and wooden pews and paneling. See picture slideshow below.
