Church Centre

The church is committed to offering our facilities to the community.

We have a small collection of meeting rooms and office space available in Central Oxford for occasional use or regular bookings at affordable rates. We offer discounted rates to voluntary groups, charities and religious groups. Many of our rooms are accessible to all, with a lift to floors in some parts of the building.

Our top floor office space (Hinton Hall) has recently been vacated and is available immediately for short term or longer term let – ideal for organisations urgently seeking additional space to comply with social distancing requirements.  We have a Covid-19 risk assessment and related procedures already in place for the premises. 

Please contact the Church Office for more information, to arrange a viewing of the rooms, to check availability or to make a booking.

All room bookings are subject to adhering to our current room booking rules. Room booking terms and conditions and booking form is available HERE.

We will make every effort to try and accommodate your wishes and make your event a success. If you require a flip chart, projector screen etc please speak to our church administrator.

Free wifi is available in most of the rooms.

Chapel

The chapel has been used in the past for a wide variety of events, from meetings and concerts to plays and art exhibitions.

The chapel has a seating capacity of 150 people on the ground floor. There is an upstairs gallery, but it has a low balcony which may be unsuitable for certain events. Please speak to our church administrator if you are considering using the balcony for your event.

The church has a PA system (with induction loop to aid those with hearing aids), and organ/grand piano available for suitably experienced musicians. These are available for a small extra charge when hiring the chapel.

Toilets – mens, ladies & disabled toilets on the ground floor.
Available for hourly, half-day or full day bookings.

Bonn Square

The church owns the ‘flat’ part of Bonn Square, directly in front of the church, and has a management agreement in place with Oxford City Council to manage the whole of Bonn Square together. Groups wishing to hold an event on Bonn Square should contact the Events Office of Oxford City Council (https://www.oxford.gov.uk/info/20035/events/553/apply_to_put_on_an_event_on_our_land ) for information and advice.

The busy and vibrant square is located in the heart of Oxford, located opposite the main entrance to the new Westgate Centre, which opened in Autumn 2017 (https://westgateoxford.co.uk/).

Sometimes the church gives direct permission to groups to use the flat part of Bonn Square, but this is only given where we have sympathy and support for the event, and feel it overlaps with our own mission. Please contact our church administrator if you wish an event to be considered (please allow plenty of time as such events need to be approved by the church leadership team).
