Emmanuel is the ideal venue for a wide and varied range of events. The main Church has excellent acoustics, comfortable seating and a raised stage which make it perfect for concerts, theatrical performances, speaker meetings and conferences.
Alternatively, the chairs can be cleared away to leave a large space for ceilidhs and dancing; or set up in other configurations.
There is a sound system and loop hearing circuit; and a large screen and projector are also available to use.
The fine Henry Willis organ has been rebuilt and is available for use, as is a wonderful Kawai Shigaru piano.
There is also a fully-equipped kitchen.
You can now check availability using our online calendar. Depending on the nature of the bookings and which rooms are in use, it is sometimes possible to accommodate more than one booking in the building at the same time; so if you are interested in a particular date please contact us to discuss your proposed event.
Emmanuel is fully accessible via a level entrance and a sloping corridor which leads directly into the Church, Garden Room and Church Hall.
There is an accessible and gender-neutral toilet off the Garden Room.
The church sound system is suitable for those with loop hearing devices.
The Hall will seat up to 100 people, and there is a second floor room which will seat 20-25 people depending on type of use. These rooms provide good facilities for tutorials, teaching, examinations, meetings, exhibitions, et cetera.
There is also a fully equipped kitchen.
The Tyndale Room is on the second floor; and has an inspiring view from the windows and a ‘period’ feel with its beams and trefoil windows. Its location at the top of the building makes it secluded and peaceful. It is ideal for many different purposes – a meeting around a table; a group seated in a circle; a presentation with chairs in rows and so on. It will accommodate around 20-25 people depending on the layout. Please note that unfortunately there is no disabled access to the Tyndale Room.
The Garden Room is a very attractive space, adjacent to the main church. It is the ideal setting for meetings and gatherings of around 25 people, or fewer; and can be set up in a variety of ways. It is easily accessible and there are adjacent toilet facilities, including a disabled toilet and baby changing area. It has underfloor heating and gets plenty of natural daylight.
