Church Centre Facilities

St Mark’s Church Centre is available for outside use by local groups, companies, clubs and for social purposes.

The Church Centre comprises:       

  • The Church Hall and the Church: the church is connected to the hall by a connecting foyer and corridor.
  • In this corridor there are newly refurbished ladies' and men's toilets and a toilet for the disabled. The toilets are equipped with a nappy changing facility.

A door from the foyer opens onto a car park which has thirty-three parking spaces including a space for the disabled. During the working week most of these spaces are used by a local company during the day, but there are always five car parking spaces available to Church and Hall users: notionally 2 for the Church and 2 for Hall Users plus the space for the disabled. After 6.00pm and all day on Saturdays and Sundays, all the parking spaces are available (33 spaces).
