Liability Waiver

The members of RHUC, in recognition of the need to provide facilities to other for purposes which are beyond the customary ministry of the Church, request the following consideration concerning the exposure for the Church’s liability.

On the understanding that every effort is made to ensure personal and property safety and security on the premises of the church, it is required that individuals and groups assume responsibility through their own insurance program for any accidents that may occur while using church property. This applies to all areas of the church property including the parking lot.

Appropriate Use of Facilities

Rental groups are responsible for the set-up and clean-up of their own events. All rented rooms and adjacent facilities used by the rental group (i.e. hallways, washrooms, etc.) must be left in the same condition of repair and cleanliness as they were found upon arrival. All food, equipment and other materials belonging to the groups must be removed by the close of the rental period. This includes room decorations and party supplies. Failure to meet this latter requirement will result in additional clean-up charges and removal of materials ($35). Special effects are not permitted.

Capacity limits of the room or rooms must be adhered to.

Smoking, alcohol and gaming is not permitted in the building. Persons wishing to smoke must do so outside.

The building staff has authority to remove anyone for disorderly conduct. Rental groups and guests are expected to comply with the instructions of rental policy and building security.

Event Advertising and Inquiries

Rental of space does not constitute sponsorship of an event on the part of RHUC. The phrase “sponsored by” may not be used in any promotional material unless approved by the Office Administrator and Vice-Chair of Council. It is required that the rental group provides contact information in their advertising in order that patrons may make inquires directly to them.
