What you can expect of us and what we can expect of you
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. Email our volunteer administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org to make an enquiry and request prices and an application form.
Accessed primarily from the main side entrance on the roadway to the public car park, with no-step access and a ramp into the Sanctuary itself, it seats between 100-120 people (100 red chairs with the option of a further 20 blue chairs). Please note that hirers will need to put their own chairs out and away after hire.
There is also the possibility of further seating on pews and chairs in the gallery above, for about 100, but please be aware that sight-lines and sound are not good. Note: use of the gallery must be requested separately as it is kept locked for safety reasons.
The Sanctuary has a large dais with comprehensive PA and video projection system, hearing aid “T” loop, organ, & piano for which a request to use can be made (use of AV system must be prearranged and training given).
The Sanctuary has underfloor heating and electric boosters if required. The space is flexible, warm and light. Access for special occasions is also available through the main front doors.
The Meeting Place (Lounge)
A cosy meeting room situated directly behind the church sanctuary with self-contained ‘coffee bar’, urn and sink. Seats around 30 people theatre-style, or 25 café style. Kitchen and toilets close by. Alternative no-step access at side entrance.
With double range oven, double sink (for hand washing and for dish-washing), microwave and fridge, crockery and cutlery. The kitchen is between The Meeting Place (lounge) up three steps, or down a flight of stairs from the Crendon Hall. We do ask regular hirers to launder any tea-towels used and bring them back. Occasional/one-off hirers may bring their own tea-towels to use.
At the rear of the church, this can be used as a very large meeting hall or a small sports hall. Seats around 100 people. Can be used for sports and recreation. (Size is limited to 1/3rd larger than a badminton court. The use of balls must be limited to a light foam or plastic ball).
The hall is ideal for children’s parties, dancing, shows, and judo, etc. It has two toilets (and access to two further toilets on the next floor if needed), and a very small kitchenette space giving access to drinking water and a sink for washing up. Tables and chairs must be pre-booked (hirers will need to put chairs out and away). Crendon Hall is not suitable for access by buggies or wheelchairs.
Lionel Jowett Room
On the first floor up a flight of stairs at the rear of Crendon Hall, it can be separated into two rooms with a central partition. Each half has its own entrance and combined can be accommodate a maximum of 40 people. Toilets are on the second floor, by the Kate Smith Room.
