Fast Wi-fi is available.

At the back of the church is a sound desk which controls sound throughout the church. The lectern or projection desk (on the lectern side, nearer the front) allow your presentation or other media to be displayed from your own device onto the main screen, the seven smaller screens around the walls and in the chancel. A HDMI connection is provided together with instructions, and a headphone jack plug can be used to play sound from your device to the sound desk.

Main Hall

Experience the versatility of our Main Hall, the perfect venue for your events! Whether you’re planning a collaborative meeting, an engaging lecture, interactive keep-fit classes, expressive dance sessions, creative theatre rehearsals, lively concerts, or fun quiz nights, our space is designed to cater to your needs.

The Main Hall in the community centre is a large space that can hold up to 150 people sitting on various chairs. It offers a wooden floor with badminton court lines and is accessible for everyone.

There’s a kitchen window that opens to the hall for serving food and drinks, and users prepare these themselves and do so at their own risk. The kitchen is used for events in both the hall and a smaller meeting room elsewhere on the ground floor, as well as the church staff.

You’ll find a storage room with extra chairs and foldable tables, which you’re expected to arrange and put back by yourself. A second room off the hall storage space contains equipment for presentations, like a projector stand. You can bring and use your own projector, or borrow one from the church if it is available (please mention when booking). For larger meetings, you might need to provide a microphone, which can be connected to our amplifier on the stage. This same sound system provides a hearing loop. For projections, there’s a screen above the stage, or it is possible to view projections using the wall between the large side windows. Fast Wi-fi is available.
