St. Peter’s Community Halls

Church Halls

The Church Halls

We occupy a large site on the corner of Eastbourne Grove and Carlingford Drive and there are several areas which are available to hirers. Many organisations hold their meetings here. We have three halls. They are called the Church Hall, the Youth Hall, and the Small Hall; we also have a meeting room called The Steel Suite.

The halls can be hired for all sorts of activities.

To enquire about the St Peter’s Community Halls, and how to hire them, e-mail [email protected] or telephone the Church Office 01702-300402.

Contact details for all the organisations which use our halls can be found in our monthly magazine, “Linked News”, available in the church foyer or the parish office.
