Although St. Matthew’s building is in use throughout the week, it is sometimes possible to hire the hall for private functions, children's parties (under 12) and community events. We are unable to accept any commercial bookings, unless there is a strong connection to the local area. Please note that the St Matthew's building is not available for hire on Sundays.
The Lower Hall was refurbished in 2001 and offers a large carpeted area with seating for up to 100 adults. There is easy disabled access to the Lower Hall, although all the toilets are on the upper floor and are only accessible from the Lower Hall via a stair case.
Our current charges for room hire, including heating and lighting are below. This is for a single session (morning, afternoon or evening). We also require a deposit to cover any breakages which is refundable on return of the keys. All rooms used must be left in the condition you found them. If it is necessary for us to provide additional cleaning then this will be deducted from your deposit.
If you wish to hire the hall or lounge, please check that it is not in use at the time you want it using our online calendar
If the building is not in use, please contact the church office to confirm that you can have the rooms when you need them and then print and fill in the form
and post it with your payment and deposit.
Your booking cannot be confirmed until we have received both your booking form
and payment. You will need to arrange to collect the keys from the Church Office during opening hours.
