Important note about Car Parking
The Church has a car park for use without any charge if it is available. It is for shared use for church and all hall spaces. At times it may be blocked off for church use such as funerals and church services. We ask all those who hire our space to be respectful and understand that a barrier at the entrance means that the car park cannot be used at that time. The roads around the church do not have parking restrictions but please do be considerate to local residents, particularly when hall users are leaving late in the evening when we ask that people leave as promptly and quietly as possible after an event has ended.
