bateman centre outside

After many years of planning and praying the Bateman Centre was opened in November 2009.

As well as providing a base for our church activities, a wide variety of community groups are making use of the new facility. There are still plenty of times in the week that are available, though, either on a regular basis or for one-off private parties. Please see the links below for details about the rooms available.

Main Hall


7m x 9m (23ft x 30ft) accommodating up to around 60 people with wood flooring. Community Group Hire. Please call for further information.

Front Lounge

front lounge web

5m x 6m (16ft x 20ft), carpeted, accommodating around 20 people. Community group hire: £10.00 per hour (min £20)

The kitchen is equipped with almost everything you would need to serve drinks, or a cold buffet. If you're considering serving a hot meal it can be possible, though you would need to discuss what is and isn't available with the centre co-ordinator. Please bring your own tea towels.
