Provo Community Congregational United Church of Christ is situated in the vibrant Historic District of Downtown Provo at the corner of 200 north and University Avenue.  The original building on the property (to the south) was built in 1923 in the Spanish Colonial Revival style with funds donated by church member Meno Trope.  During a boom in population with a new workforce entering the Utah Valley in the 1940’s and 1950’s the church saw much growth and added to the north of the existing structure in 1955-56 (dedicated in January of 1957) in a Mid-Century Modern style with soaring A-frame Sanctuary and additional multi-purpose spaces.

Parking is available on 200 North, University Avenue, and multiple nearby parking lots and terraces within a short walking distance. After business hours parking may be available at our neighbors Key Bank and Jones Paint and Glass.  In the fall of 2018, a rapid bus system (Utah Valley Express) will be available with stops nearby along University Avenue.

The Sanctuary is called upon not only for worship services but for community and private events such as concerts and recitals, weddings, lectures, choir rehearsals, and more.  It seats approximately 350-400.

The Fellowship Hall, adjacent to the Sanctuary, has a large kitchen and can host approximately 100 with dining tables.  This space can also be used for events, dances, classes, or lectures and is also available for use.

Meno Trope Hall, located in the 1923 upper portion of the building, is accessed by stairs and hosts dances, plays, parties, classes, and lectures.

Classroom spaces are also available in the lower portion of the 1923 building, accessed by stairs.

For more information on holding an event or an on-going usage, please email our Building Affairs Group to request a building request and usage terms form and rates.  These spaces may be rented hourly, in blocks of time, or on a lease basis.
