The Church Centre
Our Church Centre was built in the 1970's, and was extended in 1995. It has various spaces which are used for many Church based activities. These spaces are available for hire at very reasonable rates and the Centre is used extensively by community groups as well as by the Church
THE LARGE HALL
The Large Hall is a large space with a sprung dance floor. It can be used for a wide variety of activities.
Capacity: 120-30 (depending on seating format)
THE SMALL HALL
The Small Hall is a multiple use space, suited to many purposes,
The Lounge is a pleasant carpeted space with tables and chairs.
COMMUNAL HALL FACILITIES
The hall is disabled friendly throughout, including toilet facilities.
There is also a well equipped kitchen with two ovens, four hob burners, a fridge, two sinks, and an electric hot water urn. There is a bright 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.
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!

The charges PER HOUR for the Church Centre are:
Large Hall From £16.00 to £32.00
[The first figure is for regular bookings or concessionary bookings, the second is for “one-off” bookings]
In addition there is a £50 deposit that we require for birthday party bookings. This is refunded in full within three days of the party provided that the centre is left clean and tidy and subject to any breakages (other than fair wear and tear).
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 an hourly rate as 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.
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.
(Use of the Church centre facilities is not included in the above costs)
