Rent Our Space

Our building on Sydney Street provides a sacred setting without religious imagery. All rooms and areas for rent are fully accessible to the physically challenged. Our smaller rooms can be used for group or club gatherings and our sanctuary is perfect for weddings.

Rooms can be rented by the hour and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by our reasonable rates. We do not allow events with alcohol or games of chance and in some instances require liability insurance coverage.

For information and availability, please contact our office administrator, Sharon Watson (519-742-0432, info@grandriverunitarian.ca) or rental coordinator Margaret Insley (margaret.insley@gmail.com).

 

If urgent, you may also contact our president by e-mail: president@grandriverunitarian.ca
