Room Hire

Cranham Baptist Church is an important part of the community and so we are pleased to host community groups and family celebrations.

To encourage smaller groups get established we do not charge "per room" but instead define prices based on "per person per hour" with lower costs for set-up and set-down times; and charge for a caretaker/host to ensure you have everything you need. We also have discounted pricing levels depending on the type of event.

Please contact us by emailing with a few basic details of your event so that we can determine a more precise cost and availability.

Available Halls and Rooms

Main Hall and Side Hall : The main hall is a flexible space and can seat up to 100 people. Large sliding doors to the side (not shown in photo) extend the space to seat up to 140 people.

A popular option is to use the main hall as the focal point for your event and use the side hall to serve refreshments or for children to sit down and enjoy their party food.

There is easy access from the side hall to the main kitchen. The side hall can also be used on its own.

Back Hall, Garden Room and Garden : The back hall is a flexible space and can seat up to 50 people lecture style, 27 people in a large ring, or 24-30 people seated around large tables. Double-doors open onto a large, weather-proof garden room; which in turn provides access to a garden play area. The hall is well equipped with a leaders prep area; an integral sound system, projector and screen. There is a serving hatch providing access to the kitchen.

In summer months it would be possible to set-up the garden room as a "bistro cafe", rolling up the sides of the garden room so that adults can sit and relax in the shade while the children play on the astro-turf grassy area.

Coffee Lounge : At the front of the building is a comfortable coffee lounge. This is a general place for meeting people and socializing; and so is less available for hiring out to groups. However, some events have been hosted here if we can fit it in around other events.
