Room Hire

Welcome!

We have some excellent facilities within our church buildings that we are happy to share with the community.  Some groups, University Societies and choirs have hired various parts of our premises on a regular basis for many years.  Others come less frequently to use the church as a concert venue because of its excellent acoustics.  Yet others find that the newly refurbished kitchen with hatch access to the sizeable hall is ideal for catering. The hall has a good floor for dancing or a ceilidh.  Smaller rooms are ideal for committee meetings or the hall for larger meetings. Come and try them, you will not be disappointed.  There are photographs and more information under each Room heading.  The room areas accord with the diagrammatic ground plan below.

ETHICAL GUIDELINES FOR LETTING CHURCH PREMISES

We believe that God wills fullness of life for all people and we wish to support all that makes for fullness of life in the neighbourhood, the city, the nation and the world.

We believe that God has a special relationship with those who are vulnerable - therefore so do we.

We believe that there should be mutual respect among different faiths, groups, cultures and ages and that mutual understanding is better achieved through dialogue and social interaction than through attempts at indoctrination or conversion.

In our church we aim to be open to all, regardless of age, sex, colour, creed, class, range of ability, language or sexual orientation.

We wish to share the building with those who are working for the good of others, and especially with those who suffer particular disadvantages.

The user is also required to make arrangements for children complying with the Children Act 1989 and consistent with the recommendations in the Code of Practice 'Safe from Harm' issued by the Home Office
