Chantry Bookings

The Chantry rooms are available to book at very reasonable rates for parties, special events and conference.

The Chantry has two rooms and two kitchens available for use by outsideorganisations. These rooms, with their respective maximum capacities, are as follows:
Jenkinson Room (ground floor) - 30 persons
Sponne Hall (first floor) - 60 persons
Each room is available, when not required for parochial use, upon the payment of a Service Charge as set out below, which will go towards the cost of heating, lighting, cleaning and general maintenance of the building.

A stair gate has been fitted at the top of the landing for use when children are in Sponne Hall.

A Stannah Stairlift has been installed for use in conjunction with Sponne Hall to enable a disabled person to attend meetings or functions which they would not normally be able to do.  The Stairlift is only operational with a key which should be requested from the Parish Office when collecting keys in accordance with Condition 6 and be returned after use with the other keys.  If you need to use the lift, please say so when booking so that written instructions for its use may be provided.

In order to comply with safety regulations and evacuation arrangements, it is regretted that Sponne Hall is not available for use by large numbers of physically handicapped people, ie groups or organisations.

The main kitchen (downstairs) is available for the preparation of light refreshments.  The upstairs kitchen is for the preparation of drinks only.  Utensils and crockery are available.  Any breakages or losses are to be paid for by the Hirer.  It is the Hirer’s responsibility to ensure that any caterer booked will leave the kitchen and premises clean and tidy.

Availability of Rooms:
The rooms are not available for use by commercial enterprises and reservations may not be made more than six months in advance, other than for church functions which, in any case, take priority over outside bookings.  A booking is only deemed to be confirmed upon receipt of a fully completed Reservation Form, and the appropriate payment.

The rooms are available for use in three daily sessions as follows:

Mornings - 9.00 am to 12.30 pm       Afternoons - 1.30 pm to 5.00 pm
  Evenings - 6.00 pm to 10.30 pm

Booking a room across two sessions incurs a double charge.  Only the room reserved may be used.
