What our Brides and Guests Have to Say About Us
The staff did everything and more!
Both my husband and I were amazed at the amount of work they did to cater to our vision. During the wedding we were told by multiple friends and family of how great the food, presentation and all over experience was. We can’t thank Abbey and Carrie enough for taking care of us and truly making sure that we had everything we would ever want for our big day!
The UCCC did such an amazing job with our wedding!
We received so many compliments on how wonderful the food tasted and how beautiful the venue was, if I had to do it all over again we would come right back here! Not to mention, Abbey was just an incredible help with all of our questions and needs. Will definitely recommend coming here in the future!
One amazing place!
The venue is very pretty… but the staff is even more so. They just make you feel like you’re apart of their family.
If you need a venue for a wedding this is your place hands down!! And the food? I can’t say enough.
All you that know me know I am a bit of a snob about food. I want fresh, gluten free wholesome choices.
These chefs cooked with fresh herbs, REAL FOOD, very flavorful and mainly “naturally” gluten free. You would never know!! So good.
Everything went like clockwork! We cannot think of one thing to complain about.
We wanted to take the time to thank the Urbana Christian Fellowship Church and staff for the tremendous experience we had with the wedding of our Daughter Heather Tobias and our new son in law Jason Tobias. Weddings can be very stressful but with the perfect facility and a well-trained staff it made everything from the planning to the actual event very enjoyable.
The Christian Fellowship Facility was very well suited for our event. We had a large group with approx. 280 invited guests. The ability to have both the wedding and the reception at the same facility made for a very smooth day. The wedding was held in the church gathering area which was then converted to the reception hall and was done surprisingly fast!! This process only took about 45 minutes! The side room with the fireplace was a perfect area for our guests to enjoy a few drinks and snacks while the hall was converted. The area outside was a hit with the children especially the basketball court and the play area. There is game room upstairs that doubled as the men’s changing area and also a place to hang and relax prior to the wedding. The bride and her wedding party used a room on the 1st floor right off of the lobby area. This room had very easy access to the wedding hall.
The facility also has a full kitchen. Our food vendor (Fusion) was able to prep and serve the meal on site. We had many compliments about how much our guests enjoyed the food! The expert chef (Chette) from Fusion coupled with the onsite kitchen made this possible. Very important, the fee for the facility covered everything with the exception of the food and drinks. Including: facility rental, all tables and chairs, table / service settings (our choice of color), food serving, all clean up both for the hall and the food, and all of the staff required to make this happen! The quoted fee also included all tax’s and gratuities. There were no surprise extra fees which was very much appreciated!!
Jessica and Abbey were on board from the 1st planning meeting through the actual event. They made the planning much easier with their experience and a detailed checklist to work by. They made sure everything went to plan throughout the event. We were very impressed with the church’s volunteer staff that helped get things set up, made the wedding hall to reception room change and cleaned up at the end! By the time we left they had everything back in shape for service the next morning.
We were also very pleased with how the facility handled the serving of alcohol! They demand and take total control of serving the drinks. The staff was well trained and watched out for everyone. We had no issues relating to this and everyone enjoyed it.
Overall we had a very good experience! Everything went like clockwork! We cannot think of one thing to complain about. We would very much recommend the Urbana Christian Fellowship and staff for future events.
Thank you so much!

We held our reception here and could not have been happier with the outcome!
The in-house catering was delicious and our guests enjoyed dinner as much as we did. The venue is beautiful & well maintained.
They make it so simple by providing a venue where you can host a wedding & reception in one place! You are also given a helpful coordinator who assists you in planning and implementing your day- down to the last detail!
Urbana Conference Center was the perfect venue for our outdoor wedding!

We couldn’t be happier with the staff and coordinators that helped us make our day exactly what we pictured! Thanks so much!
Our wedding could not have been more perfect.
I loved the large sanctuary for our vows and the open space in the foyer for visiting afterwards. It was beautiful in every way!
