The Auditorium

Our auditorium has its own entrance off Jackman Avenue at the corner of Jackman and Hurndale. Built as our original sanctuary over a hundred years ago, the auditorium is 33’ X 59’ with a 17’ X 22’ stage. There is an upright piano available. Piano and piano tuning may be additional charges. The Auditorium can be set up with 150 chairs, or tables and chairs for 80. It has been used for intimate concerts, lectures, readings, exhibits, cabarets, and theatre performances. Without chairs, the multi-purpose space can be used for theatre classes, dance classes, club meetings, receptions, and more.




The Sanctuary

This 1,000-seat space with concert quality acoustics has a wrap-around balcony that affords excellent sight lines. The sanctuary has available a Moeller, 3-manual, pipe organ and a 7-foot Yamaha grand piano. This is our primary worship space, shared with our faith partner, the Danforth Jewish Circle, but the sanctuary has been used as a venue for public meetings, lectures, theatrical presentations and music performances of virtually every genre. Event fees cover the use of the sanctuary, changing rooms and a four hour rehearsal. The use of the organ and/or piano, piano tuning, microphones and custodial overtime are additional. We are committed to offering affordable space with special consideration given to not-for-profit arts, social justice, faith, educational and community service activities.


The Gymnasium

This 76’X 81’gymnasium has a wrap-around deck for your fans. With a full-sized basketball court, the gym is perfect for sports and fitness activities and classes, and yes, even dances.

The Hurndale Room

The Hurndale Room is a bright, 39’X 38’ multi-purpose room. Equipped with folding tables and chairs, this room can accommodate up to 200.

The Hurndale Room is booked on Friday nights from November to March to house our Out of the Cold Program. Piano, piano tuning and kitchen access may be additional charges.




The Bowling Alley

(Currently Under Renovation)

This charming throw back to a bygone day is one of the few private bowling alleys still in existence in Toronto. Our two-lane bowling alley was all the rage in the early 20th century and it is still great fun for kids and adults alike – ideal for birthday parties and small groups.
