If interested in using the building please first check our online calendar to see if any events are being held during the time you are interested in. Please note only church sponsored events by church groups and church members are scheduled on Sunday, so building usage for organizations and businesses is available Monday to Saturday.
After checking the online calendar to see if a Monday to Saturday date is open call, 781-826-4762, or email the church office and check with the office administrator about confirming the date and possibly moving forward with the usage process. Because the custodian’s regular schedule is not on Saturdays and the building is not normally open on Saturdays, arrangements must be made for Saturday events for the custodian to open the building and provide cleaning services for a fee.
