Looking For A Space To Meet or Rent?

The Newtown Congregational Church building is a much used community resource. It offers the use of its rooms and grounds for rental to organizations and individuals. Local organizations rent various rooms for meetings, training, fundraisers, concerts, scout ceremonies & pinewood derbies, and homeschooling. Individuals use the building for weddings, memorial services, family reunions, meetings, fundraisers, receptions, anniversaries & birthday parties, etc...

The building was completed during two phases of construction. In 1989 the Sanctuary was built and in 2006 the remainder of the structure was completed. Most of the building is fully heated and air conditioned. An elevator and wheel chair ramps allow those with compromised mobility to easily enter into and navigate through the building.

As with any large building, it requires constant maintenance. Our congregation generously contributes to the church budget in order to keep this House of God in good condition and our volunteers are dedicated to working on and contracting out tasks that need repair. Rental incomes also contribute to the maintenance of the building, so although there are minimal set fees to rent the various rooms, additional financial gifts are greatly appreciated.

Please call the office to inquire about using one of the many rooms within the building and request a price quote. You will be provided a rental form to fill in and return to the NCC office.
