If you are interested in having an event at the Meeting House, you must complete a Use of the Meeting House Application. A $200 non-refundable deposit must accompany the application for reservation of the date, which will be reviewed by the Properties and Sexton Committee at its monthly meeting.
The Committee, in consultation with the minister, will decide on your request. You will be notified by letter of their decision within one or two days following their meeting. Of course, you are welcome to call the church office for verbal confirmation. The date you choose will be “penciled” in on the church calendar.
Members of the church do not pay a fee for the use of the Meeting House. For non-members, the fees vary according to your time and space requirements.
- There are no alcoholic beverages allowed on the premises, and smoking is prohibited by order of the Fire Marshall.
- City regulations require the presence of a Fire Marshall whenever any use is made of the balcony. They must be retained and paid by the renting party.
- A non-refundable deposit of $200.00 must accompany the application for reservation of the date.
- Make checks payable to: First Baptist Church in America and mail to: First Baptist Church in America, 75 North Main St., Providence, RI 02903
