We then developed the upstairs rooms in a conference centre (opened in 2007) and in 2011 the final piece of building was completed, through a joint partnership with the City Council. The two beer stores at the rear of the premises have been developed into the Children’s Centre.
This work also involved the development of a new foyer, entrance and offices in the ‘centre’ of the two buildings.
The former Uncle Tom’s Cabin has been converted into a large meeting room downstairs – activities in here include toddler groups, kids groups, young peoples groups, contemporary worship, elderly coffee morning, alpha groups, parenting groups, men’s group, discussion groups, plus bookings from many clubs and societies.
The upstairs flats have been developed into conference rooms. These are used by the Church and increasingly by local businesses and community groups. Please look at the images below to get an idea of available rooms to hire… – at the bottom of the page are files containing booking regulations, booking forms and example prices.
