The church hall is a well maintained two storey building that was built in the 1960s. It has a lift to the upstairs which is suitable for wheelchairs and a simpler lift downstairs to help those who cannot manage the three stairs between the two levels. There is a toilet for the disabled which also includes a baby changing facility.
The hall is well used by church and community groups. Those using the hall are asked to contribute to its upkeep, which obviously is an expensive item. There are few halls in the immediate area, and we see sensible use of the church hall as a way of serving the local community.
We have three spaces available:
Lower Hall - on two levels - Foyer, Coffee Bar with seating up to 50, with kitchen & serving hatch, lower area with large space for other activities.
"Room 2" - About the size of a classroom (often used by the Nursery) - can be used for lectures etc (seating 30).
Upper Hall - (with access by stairs and disabled stair lift) large kitchen with serving hatch. Very large hall area with tables & chairs available able to seat up to 120 or up to 200 standing.
If you have an enquiry about the hall please phone 07950909244.
Terms and Conditions for using the hall
The hall is used primarily for organisations connected with the church and is not a money-making concern. It is therefore important that hall users are mindful of the fact that it is run by unpaid volunteers and do not cause unnecessary work.
