The charming and historic UUCL chapel is available for rentals, weddings and commitment ceremonies of up to 77 guests. Built in 1890, the chapel is nestled in trees off Gleedsville Road in beautiful western Loudoun County.

While there is amplification, you are not likely to need it. The AME congregation that built the chapel did it with acoustics in mind. Local folk performers have praised the chapel’s natural wood walls and ceiling as a perfect place to lift their voices.

Please contact Gaye Wallen, Church Administrator at for available dates and costs. Once confirmed please complete the Rental Agreement.
