Scheduling Our Facility

Our facilities are scheduled through our Office Administrator. Call the church office (505-856-1004) to learn more about scheduling an event. Fees for facilities rental are waived for church members celebrating ceremonies or hosting church-related events and for non-profit organizations that meet certain criteria. Groups using the space must have missions that do not conflict with the values of Church of the Good Shepherd, UCC.


The Sanctuary

Our sanctuary, with its views of the Sandia Mountains, is an awe-inspiring wedding, speaking or concert venue. It comfortably seats 150 people with room for up to 180. Chairs can be moved to accommodate different seating arrangements if needed. 


Fellowship Hall and Kitchen

Our Fellowship Hall, adjacent to our large kitchen, can seat up to 180. It also has a piano and movable stage.  

Our downstairs kitchen, which is adjacent to the Fellowship Hall has an industrial oven and refrigerator.  Because of its large size, there are never “too many cooks in the kitchen.”


Adult Learning Center

This space includes a large table and 16 conference chairs. Padded, folding chairs can be added to set up for larger meetings if needed. 





A beautiful place for a small meeting, this comfortable space includes views of the Sandia Mountains, couches, moveable tables and chairs, video conferencing equipment, and a television with DVD player. Its proximity to the sanctuary also makes it a convenient place for brides and grooms to prepare before ceremonies. 


Hospitality Room

This room across from the sanctuary is a natural place for small receptions and social events of 10-80 people. It includes a small kitchenette with sink and refrigerator. Tables and chairs can be set up if needed.
