Crossroad Center

The Crossroad Center at Augustana

Located in the Northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C., Augustana is blessed to have facilities at the intersection of V and New Hampshire Streets that can house a variety of activities for the church and the community.

With this in mind, Augustana has determined that we want to use our building “as a center at the crossroad that advances the social, physical, educational, economic and spiritual well-being of diverse families, individuals and communities.”  The church is committed to sharing its space “through leases and rental agreements with groups, organizations, families, performers, and celebrations that share Augustana’s mission and values and are prepared to financially contribute to sustain the space and its use.”

Using facilities at the Crossroad Center

Groups and organizations come to use space as tenants that lease space for exclusive or shared use or as renters that use facilities through weekly or event related agreements.

Current tenants are Lemontree Playgroup and the Semillitas Early Learning Center.

Current weekly activities include Alcoholics Anonymous and a Capoeira class.

A busy schedule of occasional events has included charter school graduation ceremonies; Capitol Roundup parties and talent shows; concerts and recitals; birthday parties, condominium residence association meetings; summer programs; classes in computer learning, story telling, reading; family celebrations; and other meetings and conferences.

Available spaces

The Crossroad Center has a variety of spaces available for rentals.

Social Hall

With access to a kitchen for set-up, our social hall is perfect for parties and receptions. It is 1,800 square feet and features a bank of sliding glass doors that open out onto a patio. The space is large enough to seat 100 people for a dinner or fewer with space for a dance floor. It has a variety of lighting (wall sconces, overhead track) that can be set to different moods.

Break-out rooms

For groups looking for workshop space, there are three additional break-out rooms for small groups.

Community room

Our Community Room, which is undergoing a face-lift at the moment, is great for small groups. This room is roughly 540 square feet and can easily fit up to 35 people in a presentation style set-up.

Other information/to inquire about space

All of our spaces have wheelchair access.
