Recent changes to the Sanctuary provide more space for weddings, musical performances and special services.There is quite a bit of room in the Sanctuary for musical duets, trios and perhaps a quartet. There is also room for risers for choirs.
The area around the altar is an appealing space for theatrical sorts of performances especially
because of the option to use two levels at once.
THE PARISH HOUSE
The Parish House provides a comfortable space for meetings, receptions or meals. It is an open and bright meeting area large enough to accommodate 35 people in a circle-setting. It is handicapped accessible with no stair chairs or elevators. The round table on the right is part of a reception area.
PARISH HOUSE KITCHEN
The Parish House has a Kitchen equipped with a stove, refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee makers, and a high speed dishwasher. The Kitchen has a pass-through window which can be closed so that a meeting can continue in the Parish Hall while food preparation, setup, or cleanup is going on in the kitchen.
THE CHURCH OFFICE
The Church Office provides an open and well lit space for small meetings or breakout sessions. It is accessible from a lower side door. It also permits meeting while the Parish Hall is set-up for meals.
