Church Hall and Hire

The Church Community Hall

St John's Church Community Hall is a great place to have a party or other functions. It is a good size and shape with a spacious, well equipped kitchen and is heated by radiators. There are double doors out onto a patio leading to a large play area with well-kept grass.

The hire charge is £16 per hour which includes heating, lighting, use of the kitchen and a meeting room - and the outside play area if you wish.

Arranging your own event

The hall is a popular venue for children's parties (up to 12 years of age) and other family occasions, usually on Saturdays and Sundays. Those who book it commonly say how clean and bright it is. If you are interested in holding an event there, whatever its nature, Pam Alderson, the church hall manager, would be very pleased to talk it over with you and answer any questions you may have. You can speak to her on the contact number given below. Or if you would like to have a look round first you could come to the hall any Sunday morning between 11 and 11.30 am. There will be people there who can help you and tea and coffee will be available. All sorts of functions are held in addition to the regular events listed below and yours could be one of them! We'd love to hear from you.
