The perfect space to host an intimate event without spending a month's rent. Perhaps you’d love to have 30 of your closest friends over for birthday cocktails, but New York apartments are just too small to accommodate your dream soiree? Look no further! We are accepting bookings for your special event: * Wedding * Baby Shower * Bridal Shower * Birthday Party * Anniversary Party * Dinner Party * Friendsgiving * Other Private Events The space comfortably seats 20 people for a sit down dinner and up to 60 people for a standing cocktail event. It’s a furnished environment including a full kitchen where your friends can cook up a storm or your caterers can make themselves at home. Chic but homey, and looks great in photographs. The natural light is beautiful and abundant! To keep our space affordable, set up and clean up is up to you. You may move items, we just ask that you please return them to their original place. That being said, you are welcome to use anything in our fully-stocked kitchen (plates, cutlery, glasses, serving platters, pots and pans, cake stands, etc.) - anything that can be washed and put back, you're welcome to! Please note that the decorations in the space (such as the swooping cloth pictured in the photograph) changes in accordance with the season. We'd be happy to provide you with information about the specific decorations during your rental time. We do not provide speakers or a sound system. Renters can bring a portable speaker from home for background music. Loud music is not allowed (i.e. if you want to hire a DJ, we are probably not the venue for you). Renters are expected to be respectful of neighbors and keep reasonable noise levels at all times. St. Lydia's is a small storefront church space that hosts rentals of all kinds. We are a progressive, LGBTQIA-affirming congregation working together to dispel isolation, reconnect neighbors, and subvert the status quo. Proceeds from all rentals are in direct support of St. Lydia's. Thank you! <3

Alexandra B. booked a 50th birthday party for 30 people
The space was beautiful, charming, organized, down to earth, and inviting. The communication was always generous, accommodating, and timely. We had such a beautiful party and it was in part due to the warm and loving vibe of the space, which you could just feel in its veins. Brilliant place.
Sara Jane K. booked a baby shower for 60 people
We had a wonderful time at St Lydia’s. Everything was accessible as Debbie showed us in our previous visit. I think we followed all of the guide lines for opening and closing up. The space really worked for out group and for the caterer. Thanks to Debbie it worked out well. Sara Kintzer

Great clean space! Lovely backyard! Helpful friendly team in getting everything set up and organized. We were able to utilize larger tables than what is pictured and had a good handbook to answer any questions we may have had.
Linda Y. booked a baby shower for 60 people
Amazing space at St. Lydia’s. Debbie was so responsive to all my questions/concerns. She reached out ahead of time to allow us to check out the space was a great! We fully utilized the back space which was a plus for extra space for baby shower decorations/setup and games. The full kitchen and all the table spaces were perfect for us to use for our catered food. Definitely a place I would consider for any future events.
Melissa P. booked a bridal shower for 20 people
St. Lydia’s was a great even space for a small intimate gathering with our friends. I hosted a bridal shower for my bff and nearly everyone complimented the space and setting. Debbie was super helpful throughout the whole booking and was easy to reach. I would recommend for anyone throwing a small get together. There is also a nice sized outdoor space for entertaining that is super cute.
