Room Hire

Trinity United Reformed Church is a place of Christian worship and is cared for by a Christian congregation. The building is made available for community use as an expression of Christian service to God and to the community.
Trinity URC expects that all hirers and their activities on the premises will respect the spirit in which the building is made available. The ‘Terms and Conditions of Hire’ describe how we expect the property to be treated, and outline the legal obligations of the hirer and Trinity URC.
