About Facility Use
Food at Events
Trinity Hall includes a large commercial kitchen and two smaller kitchen areas are available adjacent to the Tierney Room and in Angus Hall. If you wish to rent the large kitchen, please contact the church office. You are welcome to use our freezer and refrigerators for food storage on the day of your event. Please note that we do not allow food or beverages aside from water in our Sanctuary or Chapel.
Trinity allows wine and beer but no hard alcohol at on-campus events. Per diocesan policy, any event where alcohol is served must offer an equally appealing non-alcholic beverage option. Alcoholic beverages cannot be sold on Trinity campus. The full alcohol policy can be read here.
Trinity seeks to minimize our environmental impact by sorting all trash into waste, recycling, and compost in clearly marked bins. All space rental agreements will include an agreement to abide by our trash-sorting practices. Violators may be fined.
Event receptions or intermissions are a welcome addition to your function. The most common space used for receptions is Trinity Hall, but other options are available. Additional cleaning fees will apply for all receptions.
Tables and Chairs
Round and rectangular tables and folding chairs are available for use during your event at Trinity. Please contact the Church Office for specific dimensions and number available.
