FAQ: What do I need to know about renting church space?
Are there restrictions on who can rent space?
There are two categories for renters:
A. Members/adherents of FSA, church organizations and designated outreach* groups may use church facilities for little or no charge. However, exceptional fees (which may be dependent on duration of rental) could include:
the cost of a custodian for set-ups and cleanup.
a minimum set-up fee for certain events, like small recitals.
There are also occasions when FSA members/adherents use a room for a small non-church gathering and we ask that an appropriate donation to the church be made.
*An outreach activity (or group) is related to work deemed to encourage/support the mission of First-St. Andrew's United Church as determined by the Property Committee
B. Individuals and organizations with no direct association with the church pay a very reasonable charge based on the type of usage**. For this group there may be additional costs for
providing entrance access
use of church-owned furniture and equipment
**Profit vs. not-for-profit utilization will be taken into account when fees are levied.
