Heated church hall with lovely acoustics
We welcome chamber ensembles, small orchestras, and choirs to rehearse in our wonderful church.
Important note: if you need to use the full stage space, the altar can be moved, but it takes 4 people to lift. It is normally situated in the middle, like in this 360 panorama: https://theta360.com/s/hdJnnNM25BICs9z6v0NT5StpA
Some history of the Church:
Built: 1840 - 41 Architect: W Rogers Listing: Grade 2
The church is constructed in the Gothic Style. The building was originally planned with the sanctuary beneath the spire and the main entrance was from Stockwell Park Crescent. The orientation was changed in 1880 when the altar was moved and the space under the tower became the main entrance and porch.
The walling is generally built of brick with buff coloured Suffolk bricks used on the west elevation and stock bricks on the side and rear elevations. The tower is constructed in stone and there are stone copings, cills, kneelers, string courses, finials, hood moulds and other details.
The accommodation comprises nave, aisles, a wide chancel and vestries at the east end on the south side. There are galleries above the aisles. Access to the galleries is via separate staircases with external entrances. The galleries are supported on slender iron columns and cranked iron beams.
At the west end there is a flower room, workshop, porches and lobbies. Above the main central entrance lobby is the tower and spire.
