Room
Hire

Here at Portswood Church, we have been blessed with some wonderful spaces which we use to run our various ministries and activities.  We are also sometimes able to hire out our spaces for community groups and charities so if you are interested in booking one of our spaces, please see the below summary of rooms and our hire charges.

Please note the following statement before completing the below room booking form. 'Portswood Church is primarily our place of worship so we do not take external party bookings (either adult or children's parties) and we are an alcohol free venue so won't be appropriate for some types of events.'

Facilities and accessibility:

All of our spaces have been made accessible with a lift to the upstairs classrooms at the back.

Every hireable space has access to disabled toilets.

Our front and back entrances are accessible by wheelchair or walker.

We have two baby changing stations, one off our Foyer and one off our Back Hall.

First aid kits and accident record logs can be located in each of our four kitchens.

We have a semi-automatic defibrillator on the front of our building.

Our forecourt has limited parking available and therefore we will usually only be able to make 2 spaces available to hirers.  Speak to us about your parking options if you anticipate this being a problem (as there is lots of local parking, much of which is free).

We have two large TVs on wheeled stands which can be used by hirers on request along with DVD players.  These both have HDMI so can be used with laptops.

We have a professional grade audio visual system in the Main Hall, however if required by a hirer, you will need to provide your own experienced technician to run this as we are unable to provide this service.

We have several different types of tables that you can choose from including:

- rectangular (seating up to 8) 

- large round (seating up to 8) 

- square (seating up to 4) 

- Bistro style tables and chairs (seating up to 4) 

- we have 100 wooden and fabric chairs in our Main Hall

- we have 40 metal and fabric chairs in our Back Hall

- we have 40 metal and fabric chairs across the 3 classrooms upstairs
