Assembly Hall


Assembly Hall

An assembly hall is a building used for the purposes of holding deliberative assemblies. Some Christian denominations call their meeting places assembly halls. Elders and ministers of Presbyterian churches gather in assembly halls for their general assembly, such as in the General Assembly Hall of the Church of Scotland.

Groups of congregations of Jehovah's Witnesses called circuits meet twice a year, once for a two-day Circuit Assembly and once for a one-day Special Assembly Day. These usually occur in structures owned and operated by the organization called assembly halls.

Assembly hall may also refer to other types of religious buildings, such as the Salt Lake Assembly Hall.

Assembly Hall can refer to multiple arenas.
