The Sanctuary

Our sanctuary’s architecture is gothic in style. The interior furnishings are elegant yet simple and have been planned carefully to create a reverent atmosphere for worship. The sanctuary has two aisles leading to the front of the church. It seats approximately 400 people including the balcony.

How Do I Get to the Sanctuary?

From Terrace Drive or Peachtree Battle parking deck | If you park on the street on Terrace Drive or in the Peachtree Battle parking deck, come in through the Terrace Drive entrance at the top of the hill, which is below the stairs that lead up to Peachtree Road. Take the stairs immediately to the right as you enter the building. Continue past the 1st floor with the Fellowship Hall up to the sanctuary, which is located on the 2nd floor.

From the Covenant Parking Lot | If you park in this lot, come in through the glass doors which lead into the Westminster Room. Go down the hallway and take the first left. Take the stairs on your left up to the 2nd floor. The sanctuary will be on your left at the top of the stairs. An elevator to the 2nd floor is available directly across from the stairwell.

From Peachtree Road | If you park on Peachtree Road in front of the church, you may enter the church through either of the large wooden doors. These lead directly into the sanctuary.

About Our Worship

At Covenant, we are deeply rooted in the historical and liturgical worship tradition that connects us to generations of believers and points us toward the future with vision and hope. Music is an important part of the worship life of Covenant. All of the music in our worship, including hymns, anthems, solos, and instrumental music, is an offering of praise, thanks, and prayer to God. Covenant also features 4 different choirs as a part of our worship.
