Christ Church Berkeley policies
  • Street shoes discouraged, but permitted if clean.
  • Do NOT put bikes on the handrails that are on the west side of the hall (the mailbox side) at the exterior "elevator" at Christ Church Berkeley. There are two signs on Cedar Street (by the green zone) that could secure four bikes. Additional railings are available at the steps that go down to the lower floor front offices. Finally, bikes may be brought into the facility provided that the wheels are clean.
  • The handrails are off-limits in order to remain compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act and keep the hall accessible at all times.

TIME: 7:30 p.m. - 10:30 p.m.
