Our Meetinghouse

Renting Space at TCFM

TCFM meets at 1725 Grand Avenue, a historic home with a large addition built by our community in the 1990s. We offer our meetinghouse for groups and organizations to use. We like to accommodate good causes and be a resource for our neighborhood. We ask that renters respect the Quaker values of tolerance and respect for others, and we reserve the right to cancel rental agreements for events that we believe are inconsistent with those values.

The spaces available for rental at TCFM are:

  1. The Meeting Room, where meeting for worship is held. The room is two stories high and has a grand piano, with windows on three sides.
  2. The Fellowship Room on the lower level, a good space for meals or for presentations by a speaker. There is a kitchen adjoining the fellowship room.
  3. The Front Conference Room, facing onto Grand Avenue, suitable for smaller meetings.

For more about renting space at TCFM, see our building use policies here and contact the office to check availability.

Accessibility

The meetinghouse is wheelchair-accessible through the main entrance, which can be reached by ramp either from the drop-off space in front of our building on Grand Avenue, or by the sidewalk from our parking lot. There are two designated disabled parking spaces in the parking lot.

We have single-user, all-gender bathrooms on every level of the building which are large enough for a wheelchair or for a person needing assistance. There is a bathroom with a changing table upstairs by the First Day School classrooms. All levels of the building can be accessed by elevator.

We use a microphone and speakers during Meeting for Worship to ensure that spoken ministry and announcements can be heard. There are assistive listening devices available in the library which connect to the meeting room’s sound system.

If you have questions about the accessibility of the building or accommodations in our community, please contact us.

Parking for Cars and Bikes

To park in the TCFM lot, enter the alley from Wheeler Avenue between Grand and Summit and drive to the end of the alley. On Sunday mornings, cars may also park in the Hidden River Middle School lots.

Bike racks are available on the west side of the building and in the parking area behind the meetinghouse.
