Regular Users

Please note that due to Covid-19, the majority of regular activities have been suspended and some groups have found alternate venues. You are encouraged to contact the Hall Lettings team via the link on the Contact Us page in the first instance, rather than contacting the activity contact, to check if an activity has resumed in the church or potentially moved elsewhere.

Groups which regularly use our facilities are listed below. Please click the + sign next to the name (or just click the name) to find out more about each activity. Although most groups operate on a regular basis, you are encouraged to contact the organiser before attending.

Note: Details of groups and contact details valid as of September 2019 but may be subject to change. If you have issues contacting an organiser, please get in touch with the Hall Lettings team.
