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:
 

  1. the cost of a custodian for set-ups and cleanup.

  2. security costs

  3. a minimum set-up fee for certain events, like small recitals.

  4. 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
 

  1. providing entrance access

  2. security

  3. use of church-owned furniture and equipment

  4. cleaning, etc.


**Profit vs. not-for-profit utilization will be taken into account when fees are levied.
