St Barnabas Church Hall is available for hire to private individuals and groups for parties and meetings. The hall is about 13m long by 8.5m wide and is centrally heated with modern wooden floor and lighting. There are lots of adult tables and chairs, and also infant tables with little chairs. The hall can accommodate 100 people as a maximum. There is a small kitchen area off with kettle and hot-plate but no oven. There is also a sink with hot water provided, and a boiling water urn. Hirers are asked to bring their own cutlery and crockery.
The Hall is well used with regular bookings on weekdays. The organiser of the Art Group who meet here regularly says that the hall has nice light and a good feeling inside! The hall often hosts weekend children’s parties, for which it is very popular.
The Hall is available for hire evenings and weekends, although we would like to limit use to finish by 11pm at night. The hire charge for one-off bookings is £18 per hour. Alcohol is not allowed to be sold in the Hall. There is parking in the streets around the Hall and the service road opposite but please be aware of the parking restrictions in Grove Rd. There is a grass area surrounding the Hall.
We would be pleased to reserve a date for your event, to enquire about hiring the hall, please e-mail the Hall Manager Jon Barclay or telephone 07580 029910.
