Using our space

This page is about renting space in our community center. If you are interested in using our sanctuary, please email pastor@firsttrinitychicago.com.

A large part of the mission at First Trinity is to provide a safe place and a place of belonging for people from all walks of life, as outlined in our mission statement, as well as our affirmation of welcome.

We retain the right to refuse use of our space to any group or individual we deem as in contradiction with our mission of radical welcome and inclusion.

We receive many requests to use our Community Center Kitchen and our Auditorium for parties, meetings, and other events.  Please understand that our space is used by many community groups and events should be planned well in advance.

  • Tables and chairs included.

The Auditorium

  • Fits up to 100 standing guests.
  • Tables and chairs available.
All rentals must be approved by the church council, pending a signed rental agreement.
Guests are asked to respect the church and the community.

Notes:
While we appreciate the creativity and enthusiasm that people put into the events that they have here at our community center we have had some requests that we just cannot agree to.  Equipment that is intended to be used outside like a bouncy houses, mechanical bulls, grills, pools, cannot be used in our building and may not be used in our parking lot.  Please speak to our staff before assuming that large equipment can be used here.
