Rent Our Facility



Conveniently located in Palo Alto’s Professorville neighborhood and steps away from downtown, the garden-like campus of First Presbyterian Church Palo Alto is a popular venue for events large and small. We rent to non-profit organizations such as The Garden Club of Palo Alto, El Camino Youth Symphony, and The Finlandia Foundation, as well as to smaller groups. Our Fellowship Hall accommodates up to 200 persons and is equipped with audio and visual capability and a full commercial kitchen, making it ideal for wedding receptions and other larger events. Groups may also rent our Chapel, Lounge, or classrooms for smaller gatherings. Our beautiful Sanctuary, with its excellent acoustics, and audio equipment and video screens, seats up to 400 persons and is available for weddings, concerts and other larger events.

Rental rates are for one- to four-hour periods, and vary depending on the size of the space needed, and whether the renter is a church member or friend, or another non-profit organization. To arrange a tour of our church campus, or for more information, please contact our Church Administrator at info@fprespa.org or (650) 325-5659 ext. 100.


The First Pres campus includes the historic Westminster House which faces Kingsley Avenue. As part of our mission, we rent out office and meeting space at below-market rates to non-profits such as Kara, which offers compassionate peer support and education to those coping with death and dying.  We also house The Learning Center preschool in some of our classrooms.
