Facilities and Space


* We believe sharing our facility is an important way to support the greater Durham community.  Organizations and individuals looking to hold weddings, baptisms, memorial services, concerts, rehearsals, lectures and meetings in a unique public space will feel right at home at the Community Church.  We are proud to be handicap-accessible.
*  NOTE that our building is not available for events and meetings during the present COVID-19 outbreak and emergency.  We apologize for any inconvenience–but we’re committed to supporting public health practices and community goals.  We won’t be accepting new bookings either, until such time as our office is fully staffed and the building is again open to the community.  Thanks for your patience.

Weddings at the Community Church
The Community Church is an Open & Affirming Congregation with experience uniting interfaith, heterosexual and same-sex couples in marriage.  Whether you’re thinking about a simple service with a few friends, or something more involved, we’re eager to help!  Love is the heart of all faith, and the gift of a lifetime.
