Event Rentals at St. Alban's

 

 

St. Alban's Episcopal Church Parish Hall & Sanctuary have wonderful accoustics and both provide an excellent venue for musical and spoken word concerts, wedding receptions, fundraisers, private parties and classes. 

 

Please contact the Parish Administrator at 510-525-1716 for information on space availability and scheduling.

 

Pricing:

Your rental price will be assessed depending on whether it qualifies as a single-event rental or a recurring-event rental. Please read the specifications for each category to see which matches your rental request.

Single-Event Rental is one event per year, OR two unrelated events by the same renter that are not part of the same rental application. If you are booking an event longer than our standard 4-hour rental, you will be charged by both block rates and hourly rates, as shown in these examples:

For a 10-hr event: Two 4-hr block rates and two hourly rates

For a 7-hr event: One 4-hr block rate and three hourly rates

 

Recurring-Event Rental is for specific rooms/areas more than once a year for regularly scheduled programs or activities, such as a class. This is based on the type of event, not the renter. For example, a concert scheduled by the same person a week after they have already booked the parish hall for a birthday party will not qualify for recurring use rates.

If you have two or more events you would like to schedule, you must include them in the same application to qualify for the recurring use rates. Dates that have been booked may still be changed at the renter’s preference, dependent on the church availability.

Every rental must provide insurance, naming St. Alban's and the Episcopal Diocese of California as additionally insured parties for up to at least $1 million dollars in coverage. This is standard insurance coverage for events. If you are a homeowner or have renter's insurance, you may be able to get a rider on your existing policy to cover your event. You can also visit theeventhelper.com, a website that provides one-time event insurance. This website is used frequently by our renters. If you have questions about insurance, or feel that you may not be able to provide it, please contact the office for more details.
