FAQs

Answers to frequently asked questions

 

What type of event can I hold at The Oaks?

As a facility-only event venue, we're open to many types of events -- reunions, receptions, showers, business meetings, parties, corporate trainings, and more. The only exception is wedding ceremonies; since we're on church grounds, any weddings taking place here need to be performed in the sanctuary of St. Mark's by the church's rector.

What comes with the rental of the space?

It depends what space(s) you rent. If you rent the larger spaces, the spaces, tables and chairs, and light kitchen use (sinks, microwave, small appliances, fridge/freezer, cutlery/dishes) are included. For an additional fee plus an additional security deposit, you can use heavily use the kitchen (range, oven, warming oven, dishwasher, washer/dryer, etc.). If you rent the smaller space -- the conference room -- just the space and tables and chairs are included. The spaces and appliances -- if applicable -- must be returned to the way you found them before you leave.

How much space do you have available?

We have an event hall, an atrium, a patio, a conference room, and a full-service kitchen. These spaces can be rented separately or together, depending on the type of event and date/time of the event. We do not book simultaneous events in the event hall, the atrium, the patio, or the kitchen to ensure that each rental party has their own space. We reserve the right to book simultaneous events in the aforementioned spaces and in the conference room, as the conference room is a separate space that does not come with kitchen use. 


Overall, we have more than 3,000 square feet of rentable space.

How much does it cost to rent the space?

It depends what space(s) you want to rent and for how long. Our lowest minimum fee is $25 an hour (minimum of two hours) for our conference room, and our highest minimum fee is $200 an hour (minimum of two hours) for our event hall, atrium, patio, and kitchen on weekends. We charge an additional fee and refundable security deposit for heavy kitchen use. We also charge a standard refundable security deposit and a refundable key fob deposit.
