Church space can be rented from community churches, synagogues and other religious spaces that offer rental services. Spaces can be located by searching through online databases such as RentMyChurch.com, finding information on church websites or calling local places of worship to inquire about dates of availability.
Churches may also accept email or fax inquiries about rental space. Places of worship may offer various forms of space, including meeting rooms, classrooms, chapels, halls and gardens. Churches may provide free space to homeschool cooperative groups, Boy Scouts troops and other nonprofit organizations that wish to use building space for monthly meetings. Some groups opt to give the church a donation in exchange for the space.
Some places of worship are unable to rent out space to for-profit businesses due to narrow bylaws that may cause them to lose their tax exempt status.
