Church centre

 

THE CHURCH CENTRE

Our Church Centre was built in the 1970's and was extended in 1995. It has various multi-purpose spaces which are used for many Church based activities. These spaces are also available for hire at very reasonable rates and the Centre is used extensively by community groups as well as by the Church.

 

THE MAIN HALL

 

The Main Hall (as pictured here) is a large space with a sprung dance floor. It can be used for a wide variety of activities.

Capacity: 120 - 130 people (depending on seating format).

 

THE SMALL HALL

The Small Hall is a multiple use space, suited to many purposes,
capacity: 40 people

 

THE LOUNGE

The Lounge is a pleasant carpeted space with tables and chairs.
Capacity: 24 people.

 

COMMUNAL HALL FACILITIES

The hall is disabled-friendly throughout, including the toilet facilities.

There is also a well equipped kitchen with two ovens, four hob burners, a fridge, two sinks, and an electric water boiler. There is also a bright, welcoming, foyer space with tables and chairs, as well as the Parish Office with office facilities for the Church.

We are delighted to be able to record our gratitude to the National Lottery "Awards for All" who have funded new chairs for the main hall, small hall and entrance area, new curtains, a P.A. system and new lighting in the Large Hall.  Also to WREN Landfill grant scheme for funding new flooring in the entrance area, new toilets, zoning the heating so each area can be heated separately and refurbishing the sprung wooden floor in the Large Hall.

 

THE KITCHEN

The kitchen is available to all hirers of the centre. It has recently been refurbished with two cookers (one gas, one electric) and a water boiler (funded by the National Lottery). The work tops have been replaced (funded by the WREN Landfill grant scheme). New, white crockery, cutlery and glasses have been purchased - the hall can now accomodate 96 people for a four course meal!

FOR BOOKING THE CHURCH FOR CONCERTS ETC.

A non-refundable deposit of £50 is charged for each booking

The cost for the use of the church is £50 (the deposit) plus the hourly rate as shown below, which is charged from the arrival of the first person associated with the booking until the departure of the last person. It is not just a charge for the actual event.

Winter (includes heating)

£50 for the first hour

£35 for each subsequent hour

Summer (excludes heating)

£25 for the first hour

£20 for each subsequent hour

Where a “winter booking” does not require or use heating, then the summer rates will be applicable.

Where a winter booking uses heating for part of the booking then the winter rates will be applicable for that period and the summer rates for the period when the church is not heated.

In addition, hirers using the organ or piano can have the option of having it tuned, for which the cost will be passed on.

Please note: The use of the Church Centre facilities is not included in the above costs.
