Hall unavailable on your chosen date and time? The church itself might be available for certain types of event.

It has almost identical facilities to the Hall and could save the day! Just ask the Hall Coordinator for details.

Please be advised that the schedule may change without notice. St James’ Church will not be held responsible for delays or cancellations to any booking. To check whether an activity is taking place on any given date, please contact the individual or group that has made the booking NOT the Hall Coordinator.

All users of the Hall (especially those using it for evening bookings) are expected to help preserve our neighbours’ peace and privacy. Environmental (Noise Pollution) Law requires the Hall Committee to ensure that all noise above normal conversation levels ceases at 11.00pm and we seek the cooperation of all Hall users in helping us adhere to this. Please take all rubbish home and leave all parts of the building in a clean and tidy state, ready for the next booking.
