|Using our Buildings|
At St Andrew's Church we believe our Church Centre premises are a part of our mission and service to our community. We are always delighted when groups or individuals approach us, asking to use our church premises, or indeed the church, for activities and events that they are holding.
Our premises are already well used, but if you are interested in booking one of our halls then we will do what we can to accomodate you and your group. A downloadable flyer with information is available here.
St Andrew's Church Centre Facilities
St Andrew's Church Centre is based around two buildings, the main church and hall complex on Church Street and the Nazarene Hall on Elm Street (just behind the main church). Both provide extensive facilities and are very flexible spaces. Both buildings have full disabled access.
This large hall (17.5 x 9.5 m) was extensively upgraded in 2010 including renovated wooden flooring, cupboard spaces and installed video/powerpoint projection provision. A stage area is available. This hall can comfortably seat over 100 people. Chairs and tables are available. A modern kitchen is available with hatch through to the main Church Hall.
A cosy carpeted meeting room with space for up to 25 people.
For larger events and concerts it is possible to use the Church Sanctuary which has flexible seating for 160 in its regular pattern. A full sound system is installed and video projection can be arranged. Note that the rear of the Church Sanctuary can be opened up into the Church Hall to provide a single much larger venue.
This adaptable suite of halls comprises one large hall (15 x 9 m) that can be divided via a partition into two smaller meeting halls. Two small break-out rooms are available. Full audio-visual facilities are installed and available by arrangement. Modern kitchen provision is also available and limited storage space is available in the Nazarene Hall by arrangement.
The commercial rate for the use of either the Church Hall or Nazarene Hall is £20 per hour.
For voluntary organisations we recommend a rate of £10 per hour which can be negotiable depending on circumstances.
If using the Church Sanctuary there may be additional charges if it requires extensive readjustment of the seating arrangement - please contact us to discuss your requirements.
If you would like to book our halls or get some more information please contact the Church Office and our Administrator, Gill Fraser.
