 Church Rentals- Time Sharing


Small congregations or start up churches often find it hard to locate affordable rental space in their desired area for their services and activities.   An alternative to this problem is “time sharing.”  The sharing takes away the worry of the up keep and the expenses of a building. An agreed monthly amount is paid for the use of the building.  It allows the church the freedom to carry out their missions.

 How to successful carry out sharing?   Acknowledgement by all, they share the same common purpose.  Always remain respectful of the schedule.  Demonstrate sensitively to the needs of the others, be flexible, and know cooperation goes along way.  Good communication between the pastors and officers of the church.   

 Often times those sharing a church building come together for special events and activities.  The congregations get to know each other, talk, share stories, and often look forward to planning future events.

 “ Time Sharing”,  a consideration for small and start up comgreagations.

Very interesting.  I had never heard of church sharing before. Time sharing makes sense to me!

Good morning Susan. It is not uncommon, as I have done a couple of mortgages for churches, so know time sharing goes on.

I had also never heard of sharing a church before but I guess it makes sense.

We have a couple of local Church's that share.  Some of them are traditional and the other one International.  They have been sharing for a very long time.
