What are my responsibilities?

  1. Provide proof of homeowners, tenants, or special occasion liability insurance, with a minimum of $1,000,000 coverage.
    You are not covered by the church insurance policy.
  2. Provide payment ($200 plus $50 deposit) at least 1 week in advance of the event.
  3. Alcohol, smoking, and cannabis are strictly prohibited.
  4. Leave the hall, kitchen, bathrooms, and garden as clean and tidy as you found them.
    Failure to do so will result in your deposit being forfeited. This means:


Anyone using the hall must provide a Certificate of Insurance or a letter from their personal insurer
confirming they have Personal Liability coverage in force with a minimum limit of $1,000,000.
This would become the primary liability coverage in the event of a loss while renting the church.

Under personal liability coverage, any bodily injury or property damage arising from your personal activities anywhere in the world are covered. This would include but not be limited to any bodily injury, or any property damage to premises or their contents which you are using, renting or have in your custody or control. Anyone who has a home, condominium, or tenant's insurance policy should have personal liability coverage.

If you do not have personal liability insurance, you will need to purchase a “special occasion” liability policy.
You may be able to obtain a quote and purchase coverage on line at, or
through the PAL special occasion insurance program.

I have read, understand, and agree to the terms of use:
