     OUR MEETINGHOUSE

The Meetinghouse if fully accessible.

We happily rent our space to like-minded groups who seek spirit-led solutions to the pressures and concerns of daily living.

 WHAT WE ASK

We request Meetinghouse users respect the following constraints:

  • We are fragrance-free. Please refrain from wearing or bringing scented items (e.g., personal care or laundry products) that can cause reactions in chemically
  •     sensitive people.
  • We do not permit candles, incense, or smoking of any kind. Alcohol is not permitted, though certain limited exceptions may be arranged, e.g., a wedding toast.
  • We ask that you leave the Meetinghouse in good condition by sweeping floors, removing rubbish, and relocating furniture, as needed.
  • Please refrain from propping open doors of either the building or the bathrooms, and from posting signs on walls, windows, or doors.
  •  If your group should encounter an unwelcome guest, please see the procedure posted on the Renters' Bulletin Board.

DOORS AND ENTRY

 When you arrange to use our space, you will receive one key card. This card allows entry to the building and into the Meetinghouse. Please make arrangements for  the rest of your group as outlined below.

  • Unlocked: Monday through Friday                        8:00 AM to 5:00 PM and 6:45 PM to 7:15 PM
