Using space at
st. Stephen's

Due to the Covid-19 quarantine all public activities including space rentals are canceled until further notice.

Dozens of organizations use our auditorium, dining room, and sanctuary during the business day and on evenings and weekends. In one recent three-month period, the building was used over 100 times by outside groups.

We at Saint Stephens are happy to share our space with organizations compatible with our core beliefs. However, Saint Stephens reserves the right to refuse use of its facilities to any group or individual for any reason.

In order to meet or sleep at Saint Stephens a group (individuals in the case of Sleepers) must make the following commitments; no violence or advocating violence, no intimidation, no hate speech and no weapons in or near the church.


​St. Stephen’s Church is glad to provide community groups with use of its two large meeting rooms, the auditorium and the dining room. Use of the church itself is also possible. The rooms are available day times, evenings, and some weekend times. (Please note that the only space available on Sundays is the dining room after 3:00pm.) Our priority is to provide space for events that benefit the community - training's, performances, meetings. St. Stephen’s requests a sliding scale donation, a minimum of $50 per hour for room use by community groups.

See costs and the calendar for these rooms, and submit a request to reserve meeting space.

St. Stephen’s also rents rooms for private events such as parties, wedding receptions, rehearsals, birthdays, and quinceñeras at a rate of $95 per hour, plus cleaning and security.

Sleeping at St. Stephen’s Church

​St. Stephen’s Church is pleased to offer sleeping space on our floors to groups traveling to Washington, D.C., for protests, conferences, service work, or other events. St. Stephen’s has offered space since the 1960s; tens of thousands of people have slept on our floors over the years, protesting various wars, demanding equal rights, witnessing for peace at military arms bazaars and at the Pentagon, protesting international structures that support inequalities, doing service work on alternative spring break trips, or attending conferences or learning about life in the inner city.

Read detailed information about sleeping at St. Stephen’s and submit a request for sleeping space.
