Using the Church
The church (the main area of the building, also known as the nave or sanctuary) is directly accessible by people with disabilities.
St. Stephen’s Church is pleased to provide the use of its rooms at low cost for events that provide a benefit to our neighborhood, our city, and our world. For such events, we require reimbursement for any costs we incur for cleaning and security (and we have the final word about whether cleaning or security are required for any event). In addition, we request a donation for the use of space based on a sliding scale, the minimum amount of $45 per hour. The fee for for-profit organizations and parties is $95 per hour.
Things to know about the church:
the church has 120 wood chairs; up to 100 metal/plastic chairs can also be used. And there’s plenty of room for more people to stand or sit on the floor
the church’s sound system can be used only by special permission
temperature ranges from 60 to 80 degrees during the week.
The church is not available for rent on Sundays and major Feast Days.
Lastly, it is our worship space. It contains religious symbols, and the church must be used with appropriate respect.
