We are situated 20 miles from Poole and 30 miles from Bournemouth in the beautiful seaside town of Swanage. Today our Church has around 70 members with youth groups playing an important part in its life and our Toddler Group. Scouts, Guides, Cubs, Brownies, Rainbows, Beavers and Junior Church meet as part of the Church family.

Swanage is a small seaside town with many attractions, including a safe sandy beach.

Our halls are ideally suited for camping holidays for youth groups. The plan shows the layout of the halls. Our kitchen is well equipped and complies with the latest hygiene regulations. A small lounge and a vestry can also be used as accommodation for leaders. Bookings can be taken for most times of the year, but the main summer holiday times book up early.

Approximately 7 x 6 metres. Access from hall via hallway to kitchen. This room has its own chairs and small tables. It is used as our Primary Department room. This has its own access via a passage way to Ministers Vestry and external side door

Lounge

The lounge is situated between the Main and Small Halls. It is approximately 3 x 6 metres and has its own toilet and washbasin. It is suitable for use as a small bedroom or quiet room.

Minister’s Vestry

This small room, with a separate gas fire, has en-suite toilet and wash basin. This room may not always be available, or may have to be vacated for short periods for interviews, etc.

Kitchen

The Church hosts a regular luncheon club. Because of this our kitchen meets current health and hygiene regulations. It has a catering standard double cooker, dishwasher, hot cupboard, urn, cutlery and crockery.

Basement

This is used as our FURY (Fellowship of United Reformed Youth) Club room. It is reached by a narrow flight of stairs, and is not suitable for either the Elderly or disabled. It is partly furnished with comfortable chairs and has access to the garden. (The word garden is used in its loosest sense. It is a patch of ground which tends to be out of sight—out of mind).

General

Directly opposite the Church is a convenience store.

Toilets

Toilets, with washbasins, are situated in the main vestibule, some at ground level and another suite on the first floor. Additional toilets are at the rear of the lounge and in the Minister’s Vestry. Disabled toilets are also available on the ground floor
