our Community Centre Hall is not currently available for new bookings

We have excellent facilities, which are in high demand.

Community Centre Hall

Our domestic hire charges are £30 per hour for the Community Centre Hall. The domestic rate is for children’s birthday parties, christening parties, wedding parties, family celebrations and community groups.

For use of the Hall primarily for commercial or public sector purposes, the rate is £40 per hour and includes setting up, packing away, opening and locking and the cost of a caretaker. This fee is negotiable for regular bookings where keys can be provided and setting up and packing away is done by the hirer.

Hiring the Hall includes full access to:

  • Five toilets (women, men x 2, disabled x 2) including two sets of baby changing facilities
  • Car Park (23 marked car parking spaces but with space for more cars than that. There is also plenty of free street parking available along the side of the
  • Churchyard on Meadows Avenue)
  • 90 foldable chairs (stored on two trolleys)
  • 12 large tables
  • 8 small tables
  • 5 coffee tables
  • 9 sofas
The kitchen adjoined to the Community Centre Hall is not available for hire. This is due to food hygiene requirements and the training needed to operate the equipment (commercial quality). We can provide a member of staff to be based in the kitchen which enables groups hiring the hall to be offered refreshments, such as tea and coffee. The cost for this is £15 per hour. This includes the use of the hot water urn, tea pots, cups, plates, glasses, cutlery. Tea, coffee, and biscuits are provided at a cost of £0.25 per person.

For a small additional charge we also have an audio visual system which can be used by prior arrangement and training. This includes a radio microphone, digital ceiling mounted projector and wall mounted screen and amplification to play videos and music.


Here at Christ Church we’re very happy for those hiring the hall to bring in outside caterers. Alternatively, we can assist you. Subject to availability, we can provide a small team to set up tables and chairs, serve tea and coffee, and prepare and replenish a simple buffet consisting of sandwiches, crisps and other nibbles, and cake. The advantage of this is our small team will handle everything for you. The charge for this is usually around £7.50 per head.

Church Awaydays

The Church and Hall building are regularly used by other churches for Vision Days, PCC Awaydays, and Alpha Awaydays. In support of the mutual mission to promote growth in discipleship, Christ Church Thornton makes no charge to other churches to use the buildings for such purposes.
