The Hall is available to book for both private functions and for public performances. An entertainment licence is held but a licence for the sale of alcohol must be obtained before bar facilities can be authorised (see below).
We have a lovely stage for performances and a newly laid badminton court (see below):
This is our stunning new Coffee Lounge with a bar to serve your guests refreshments.
Above is our fab new kitchen, equipped with larder fridge, dishwasher, hot water boiler and range cooker. We have an extensive new collection of crockery available for use too.

With a little imagination the Church Hall can be transformed for your perfect function. Pictured right is a recent RNLI Dinner Party (circular tables and candelabras were hired to give a touch of class).
Wedding Receptions - The Church Hall makes a wonderful and affordable place to hold your wedding reception. Whether or not you hold your wedding at Christ Church the venue is available for all. We offer a package including exclusive use of the Hall and Coffee Lounge. The Hall can be made to look amazing and beautiful, all it needs is some artistic licence!
Children's Parties and Baptism Teas
Why not book our Hall on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon for your child's party? The main Hall gives ample space for games and bouncy castles whilst the Coffee Lounge can be set out for tea. Or perhaps we can be the venue for guests following your child's service of baptism that usually take place at 11.15am on Sundays. The charge is just £35. Please contact Sarah, in the Hall Office, if you are interested in the hall (but please see the Vicar first about the baptism - tel: 01642 -722665).

The operating costs of the Parochial Hall are generally funded by receipts of Hall booking fees from regular and casual users and it is intended that these fees are both reasonable and competitive. In order to keep them so and to allow for improvements to the fabric and to purchase and replace equipment for the Hall, a '200' Club operates. Please see the '200 Club' for details.
