Building Rentals & Use

The Kitchen will be closed for renovations starting May 1, 2022.

Griffin Hall will be closed for renovations starting May 23, 2022.

One way we serve the greater Des Moines community is to make many of our church spaces available for rent to outside groups. From the auditorium to downstairs classrooms, we have space for a variety of meetings and events. Members may reserve church space without charge for personal or family use.

If you’re looking for a location for your wedding, we’re happy to host your big event!

If you’re interested in renting space for other purposes, please review our Building Use Request Form, which includes equipment availability, and our Alcohol Policy Agreement (if applicable). Then contact Hannah Notch, at to check availability.

Please note:

First Unitarian Church does not automatically provide setup or cleanup for your event. If you are unable to assemble volunteers for these tasks, please email at least 10 business days in advance. A setup/cleanup charge will be applied to your rental bill.
