Space Rentals

In making space available for rental, Fort Washington Collegiate Church (FWCC) seeks to encourage broad usage of our facility by our neighborhood community, and we recognize that events for which space is rented may not directly reflect the faith perspective of FWCC.
However, space will not be rented for any event that may oppose the principles and values of FWCC.

Contact events@fortwashingtonchurch.org  for more information.

You can view our facility and rentals by APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please call or email to set up an appointment.

Deposit

A rental deposit is required for use of the church facility. The deposit must be received with the fully completed and signed Facility Rental Agreement Form. If the deposit is made by check, the check must be posted at the Bank before the request for the facility rental will be approved and/or the church accessible for any portion of the event. All checks are to be payable to Fort Washington Collegiate Church.

If your event goes beyond the above listed times, you will be billed for additional labor hours per worker at the rate of time and a half.  If the nature of your event requires additional crew, e.g: security or a sound technician, FWCC will pass on the additional labor charges to you. 
These will be discussed and agreed upon in advance of your event.
