The Church Hall

The Parish HallMost of the Parish Groups meet in the Church Hall, which was built in 1999. It is situated in the church grounds, connected to the church. Whilst it is used extensively, it may sometimes be available for private functions.

To check availability and to book the Hall, please contact the Presbytery.
