"I had a birthday celebration in Hattie Porter Hall, and I was very pleased with the venue. The room is very spacious, clean and attractively appointed. It was ideal for dining and dancing, and the church staff was most helpful. I intend to use it again for my 80th birthday."
"When I sit in the circular shaped sanctuary surrounded by the beautiful stained glass windows and the symbols of the major religions, I reaffirm my belief that all are welcome in this gorgeous place."
"By using The First Unitarian Church I was able to have a wedding within my limited budget."
"When I first saw the sanctuary of the First Unitarian Church of San Jose, I thought that it was one of the most beautiful places I had ever seen anywhere on earth. Now, twenty-five years and hundreds of visits later, I still feel that way every time I walk in. We are fortunate and blessed to have such a beautiful, peaceful place in the heart of San Jose."
"Maxine Goulding is a first rate wedding planner and she helped me to have the perfect wedding at the First Unitarian Church."
"The domed sanctuary of the FUCSJ offers excellent sound reach and quality. Acoustic music blooms in this warm, resonant space, and the well-maintained Steinway piano is especially sweet in tone. Soloists and ensembles will find that their sound carries easily from any point in the circular room to all seating areas."
