Church Hall

Our Church hall is a great space for organisations and can hold around 100 people (again much reduced when Covid-19 restrictions apply). It has been a very popular space with local community groups who meet weekly, so please give us plenty of notice to confirm your required date.  The hall can function as one large space or be divided into 2 halls to create a more intimate space, ideal for smaller groups.

A kitchen is available for any catering needs, either private or using outside caterers.
