Building Usage and Rental

Asylum Hill Congregational Church offers meeting and event space options for up to 100 people. As Christians, we are called upon to share our resources with others. Among these resources is our physical plant. At the same time, our duty of stewardship requires us to care for our resources and use them in a constructive way, so that in the act of sharing we do not undermine our own purposes and mission. All rooms are handicap accessible.
