In addition to serving our mission to congregants, we offer our facilities for non-church-sponsored activities for members and non-members alike. To ensure availability and appropriate use, all requests for facility usage must be made by submitting our Facility Usage Application. Approval of requests requires the signature of any two Board members.
The sanctuary includes a podium, microphone, piano, speaker system, tables and moveable chairs that may be configured many ways. The sanctuary is handicapped accessible. The lower level provides additional meeting spaces for smaller groups that may also be differently configured. A nursery is available in the lower level in conjunction with another event. Natural areas on the property may also be available.
Hopedale members and Hopedale-sponsored groups are exempt from facility usage fees. Civic, social service, and religious groups are also exempt from facility usage fees. Hopedale is welcoming of donations from members and organizations exempt from fees. The aforementioned individuals and groups are expected to clean up after their meetings to avoid cleaning charges or revocation of facility usage privileges.
Contact the Hopedale office for additional details and to check availability for the date(s) of the event. Once a Facility Usage Application has been submitted, an administrator will contact the applicant. Before a first-time renter’s application can be approved, a tour of the rental space must be completed with a Hopedale administrator.
