The Lower Hall is a lovely bright room suitable for larger gatherings and especially where catering is needed. It is located on the ground floor and is easily accessible from the main Centre entrance. It is suitable for groups of up to 100 people.
The hall can be set up with tables and chairs for a cafe-style or catered event and is next to the Centre’s main kitchen (see below). The kitchen has a double gas cooker, hot water boiler, dishwasher, fridges and preparation areas. Hire of the kitchen includes use of glasses, jugs, cups, plates, bowls and cutlery. Please note that if you are preparing a meal in the kitchen, we will require you to have the appropriate hygiene certificates.
The Lower Hall can also be used for medium sized conferences or meetings and set up with chairs in the pattern required. The hall has a pull down screen for projection and also its own PA system. We have a projector available for hire and the PA system can be used for a small charge.
The Lower Hall is next to the main church which makes an excellent conference venue for up to 120 people. Conferences or meetings using the church usually hire the Lower Hall as well to provide space for drinks, catering or small groups.
The hall is close to both the toilet for the disabled and the main Centre toilets, which also have baby changing facilities (both Ladies and Gents).
The hall is the home of Dove Cafe so is never available for hire on a Tuesday or a Thursday before 3 pm. In late 2019, we fitted new windows in the hall to improve heat conservation and allow in more natural light.
The main Centre kitchen is next to the Lower Hall and can be booked for making drinks or meals.
The kitchen in the Lower Hall has a large capacity hot water boiler for making drinks, as well as all the cups you need. The kitchen has a double hatch onto the Lower Hall allowing people to be served easily.
