One of our most versatile rooms, the Old Parish House features stylish couches arranged for easy and comfortable small-group discussion. The remainder of the vast space is open.

  • Required set-up
  • Take-down and clean up time
  • Optional additional equipment provided (screen, use of organ, etc.)

We reserve the right to refuse to rent space for any reason. An inquiry into availability is not a guarantee of a booking. Booking must be approved by specific members of the Redeemer staff. 

We do not offer any rental space on City of Newton voting days, as we are a polling center.
