The primary purpose of the Accotink Unitarian Universalist Church (AUUC) is to provide a spiritual home for the members of its congregation. To the extent that our facilities are not committed to church-sponsored activities, the facilities are available, at the sole discretion of the AUUC Board of Trustees (BOT), to individuals and community groups.
Sanctuary Hall Capacity: 200
All arrangements for dates, times and set up must be made through the church rental committee. The church administrator will arrange contact with the proper church contact people.
The maximum occupancy for the sanctuary is 200 people. 165 movable chairs are available for use within the sanctuary. An additional 40 chairs can be placed in the overflow area. The sanctuary can accommodate up to 15 eight-foot long tables, each seating eight people. The room is equipped with a sound system that can accommodate up to 3 microphones, and has a tape cassette and CD player.
Lower Level Rooms
Folding tables and chairs are available on the lower level in the storage closet adjacent to Room 107.
The paved lighted parking lot contains 50 parking spaces. Additional on-street parking is available.

Each application form must be signed by the applicant and accompanied by the required deposit as specified below. Reservations may not be made more than one year in advance unless approved by the BOT.
