Shaughnessy Heights United Church is at 33rd Avenue, one block west of Granville Street. There is free street parking and the Translink Bus (10 Granville) stops nearby.

As a resource and service to the community, we welcome rental groups and individuals who support the well-being of the community. We offer convenient and affordable spaces for meetings, weddings, celebrations of life, receptions, yoga, dance, rhythmic gymnastics, and related arts and athletics classes – large or small.

Availability is Monday to Saturday 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Church equipment must be put away, decorations and litter removed, and the premises left tidy and clean. Church kitchens are available and tenants/renters are solely responsible for the quality and preparation of their own food.

Smoking is not permitted in any of the church spaces. Liquor is allowed only in the Main Hall and a liquor license must be provided to the SHUC administration office 48 hours in advance of the scheduled event. Violation is cause for immediate termination of the rental agreement.

The name of Shaughnessy Heights United Church, or SHUC for short, must not be used in a way that implies event or group sponsorship.

Accessible, affordable multi-use spaces

All rental inquiries are carefully considered for fit with the church mission. Priority is given to requirements of SHUC congregation. When booking conflicts arise, it may be necessary to give notice to the group using the space and to provide an alternate space or refund.

Signed rental agreements are required and terms are negotiated annually in the case of month-to-month rentals. SHUC reserves the right to discontinue a rental agreement. Rental rates are determined at the time of space booking and are honored for the duration of the signed agreement. Insurance coverage is the responsibility of the community group or individual renter or tenant, and proof of insurance must be shown.

Good neighbor norms apply

Tenants and renters are responsible for their own clean-up.
