Facilities Rental at St. James'
Our parish hall is available for rent for small functions or larger ones up to 300 persons. Fully air conditioned during the warm summer months, it is ideal for small or large meetings, wedding receptions, banquets, and dinners. A full commercial kitchen with dishwasher is conveniently located in the rear of the hall. Parking is available for 150 cars. The entrance is easily accessible for all persons. We can accommodate events of various sizes on the upper level of the building. Entrance to this level is straight in from the front parking lot on a level walkway under the canopy seen on the left side of the exterior photo below. There are also stairs at the back of the building (right side of the photo) leading to plentiful parking in a lot on the lower level.
The main hall (room P200 on the floor plan) of the parish hall building is 64' by 51'. It is carpetted and decorated with neutral colors. It has six skylights and a double row of windows along the 51-foot walls on both sides. A temporary dance floor can be set up on top of the carpet, as shown in these photos of a wedding reception. Below are five views of this sapcious and airy main hall.
A small private meeting room (library) (room P205 on the floor plan) is also available at the back of the parish hall on the upper level. It has comfortable seats for 10 persons. This room is 25' by 15' and contains a VCR and large television. Here are two small pictures of the library; you may click either one to see a larger version. (The bookcases in the photos are along the 25' wall.)
The undercroft (lower level) of the church building is also available. This space is air-conditioned during warm months and also has a small kitchen. The flooring is vinyl tile and there are folding accordion walls that make the space very adaptable to specific needs. Two areas of the undercroft are available for rent:
- The main space in the undercroft is a large square room that measures 38' x 38'. It is room C101 on the floor plan. A pull-down movie screen hangs on the north wall. Folding walls on the south side of this room separate it from rooms C102 and C103, which are not available for rent.
- An auxiliary space in the undercroft is separated from the main space by a permanent wall. It houses the nursery and four classrooms used by our Sunday School. The classrooms (rooms C104, C106, C107, and C108 on the floor plan) are all separated by folding walls (which are denoted on the floor plan by dotted lines). With the folding walls collapsed, the space is an ell shape about 31' x 38', with a 16' x 16' corner walled off with permanent walls to house the nursery. The photos below show the space with those walls collapsed:
We offer reasonable rates by the hour or per event. Schedule your next event here. The hall may be scheduled for daily or weekly events. For more details, contact the church office by phone or by email.
