The new parish hall at Emmanuel Episcopal Church on Lyons Plain Road is on track for completion in July. The new facility, including space for nearly 300 people and a commercial kitchen, will be available for public use.

Emmanuel Episcopal Church recently opened the doors of its new parish hall for a preview tour.

Rector Rob Ross guided parishioners through the building, which is slated to open in July. In addition to using the space for parish activities and events, Emmanuel plans to make the facility available for town meetings, nonprofit group meetings, wedding receptions, and other large-occupancy uses.

Highlights of the parish hall include a 35- by 70-foot room that will be able to accommodate 287 people. A full legal and permitted commercial kitchen is also being competed, which will be available to caterers for both on-site and off-site use.

The building will be equipped with a generator, providing shelter and a working kitchen to area residents in the event of power outages.

“We are very excited about the completion of this parish hall, which we hope will be a beacon for community activities,” said Philip Matthews, vestry member.

Emmanuel Episcopal Church (emmanuelweston.org) is at 285 Lyons Plain Road in Weston. Call 203-227-8565 or email office@emmanuelweston.org for more information or to arrange a tour of the new parish hall.
