There are three spaces available for hire at St Michael’s – the Community Centre, the Church Hall and the Church building itself. Some events will be more suited to one space or another, depending on size, facilities and your requirements.

Community Centre

St Michael’s Community Centre opened in early 2007 offering a contemporary venue for the local community. As an extension to the popular 19th-century church, the centre offers a well-appointed space to host any event for all age groups. Music groups, coffee mornings, toddler groups and exercise classes all take place here. Businesses can also use the centre, for example for their AGMs, and individuals can hire the space for christenings, parties and other family events. The centre was designed to the highest specification with high ceilings, natural sunlight from above, underfloor heating, sprung floors and good acoustics. There is also a well-equipped kitchen plus disabled and baby-changing facilities.
