This Space Request if for use during Phase 4 of our Pandemic Plan. Pending a change of plans, Manchester UMC will permit groups to meet in the building. Please submit a separate Room Request Form for each Manchester UMC approved event/activity. Because space at the church is in high-demand, you are encouraged to submit your room request as early as possible.

An email confirming your request will be sent after you submit the below form. The event/activity contact person will typically be contacted by the church office with one week of submitting the below request to advise what room has been reserved.

Important Notes:

  • Rooms can only be requested six months prior to your event.
  • If your event is postponed or cancelled, please notify Sherri Estes as quickly as possible so we do not use resources to setup the room and so the space can be made available to other ministries.
  • There are no carry-over reservations from year to year.  All events/activities (including annual events/activities) must be officially rescheduled for each new year.
  • Our facilities team does their best to honor a group’s first or second choices for rooms. Just know that there are a lot of requests and sometimes this means an alternate room may be assigned to meet the needs of everyone.
  • The requested space is not confirmed until you receive a confirmation email from Sherri Estes.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact Sherri Estes at the church office.
