RESERVING & PAYMENT
To see what is available and start the reservation process, please contact us with your information and preferences. We will respond to your request in the order which it has been received. You can expect a response from our Community Events Coordinator within two business days.
We require payment to confirm. We will hold the space for up to 7 days or until we have received payment in-full and the space is confirmed. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, checks, and cash.
Each of our rooms is offered at an hourly rate. We also have a subsidized rate for 501c3 nonprofits and recovery groups. Please see each space’s page for individual room rates and more information on room specifics.
You and/or your group are only allowed to use the room(s) you have reserved.
You and/or your group are responsible for set-up and clean-up. Be sure to calculate adequate time for setup and cleanup in your reservation.
Rooms need to be cleaned, including carpet sweeping, taking out the trash/recycling, and wiping down the tables. A cleaning deposit is also required to ensure policies and agreements are upheld.
Please leave the room the same way you found it, including furniture. Rooms may be rearranged, but must be returned to the original layout. Furniture may not be moved in and out of rooms without prior arrangements.
Keep indoor noise levels at all times. There may be other groups using rooms nearby.
Rooms are available to rent 8:30am-9:00pm Monday-Saturday and 1:00pm-7:00pm on Sunday.
The main entrance is located on SE Belmont Street between SE 54th and 55th Avenues, through the courtyard at the top of the stairs. There is a wheelchair access to the right of the stairs for the main level and to the left of the stairs for the lower level.
An Event Host is on staff during all hours of operation. The Taborspace office is located on the main level, second office to the left from the main entrance lobby.
We do not allow the use of alcohol or smoking on the church property and no glitter, mylar balloons, bird seeds, or rose petals permitted.
Keys are not given.
All children must be supervised by a parent/guardian at all times throughout the entire building and grounds. No running is allowed in the building at any time. Please ask children to walk carefully and use inside voices.
We partner in using this historic church building with Mt. Tabor Presbyterian Church, a Christian congregation committed to bridge-building and conversation with all faiths. Out of respect for this historic faith tradition and to maintain a healthy relationship with the congregation, there are certain events that we may request to have a conversation about, ask to revise, or decide they are not the best fit here. While all people are welcome, sometimes not all behaviors are. Bullying, rude, destructive, or oppressive behaviors will result in being required to leave the premises.
Safer Space Agreement: As a community space, we are shaping a culture that encourages the well-being of all people from every race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, faith/religion, ability, age, access to resources, and life situation.

Taborspace and Mt. Tabor Presbyterian Church are not responsible for theft or loss of any property or belongings brought on to the church property (including the parking lot). Users are expected to take reasonable precautions to protect both personal and church property from loss and damage.
Users assume the risks for liability resulting from injury to persons using the facilities during a non-congregational-sponsored event. Users will also reimburse the church for any damage to church property or equipment resulting from the organization’s or individual’s use of the facility. All users are required to sign a Space Use Agreement before the start date of their event.
If your event is public, for an additional $15 fee we will publish the title, description and any pertinent information you want on our public calendar. You are also welcome to bring in one flyer to post on our community bulletin board in the coffee house.
