Our Marvellous Parish Hall 

Picture1 
Our Parish Hall in New High Street, called Church House, is operated as a separate charitable trust, but all the building costs, and a good number of repair costs, have been paid for by All Saints Church. It is our offering to the parish. It is a busy and lively community centre used by a huge range of groups.

The regular users are listed below. If the group has no weblink, and you want more information, contact James Larminie, using email churchwarden2@allsaintsheadington.org.uk or ringing 01865 769054. He will be able to put you in touch with the organiser.

The Main Hall is kept free of regular bookings in the afternoons for parties and other occasional events, such as local meetings, arts events, community meetings and so on.

Booking the Hall

On Sunday afternoons and evenings we keep the hall open for parties, especially children’s parties. Arts groups are also welcome, and we have in the past welcomed events such as puppet shows and small music groups. Note that we do not book events going on after 10pm, out of consideration for our neighbours.

The Upper Hall, see below, is free during the day, and is available for booking. It is ideal, for example, for training classes.

The Upper Hall is also kept free of regular bookings on Friday evenings.

To enquire about booking the hall, and hire charges, please contact the booking secretary using allsaintschurchhouse@hotmail.co.uk


Main Hall

 

Picture2

The main hall is a high open space, big enough for all types of events, and able to take party equipment such as bouncy castles. Available to book on Sunday afternoons and evenings.


Kitchen

 

Picture3


A well-equipped kitchen (cooker, microwave, kettles, fridge etc.) with plenty of crockery, plates, mugs, cups, glasses and etc. This is available to all users, but is especially useful for Main Hall and Committee Room users.
 

Committee Room

Picture4

Useful for smaller meetings and ‘breakout groups’. This room only has regular bookings during the weekend.
 

Upper Hall


Picture5

An air open room, that can hold up to about 40 people seated. This is available to book during the day mid-week.
 

Solar Panel

As a contribution to doing something about our climate emergency, the trustees invested about £15,000 in a 10 kWpk solar panel installation in 2016. It generates far more electricity than we use, and so if you live near the hall your electricity will sometimes be coming from our panels. We have exported (on 6/9/21) nearly 10,000 kWh of electricity. The equivalent, using a calculation of dubious optimism by the electricity company, of planting 114 trees.

Planning your Visit

A Warm Welcome

We welcome everyone to our Sunday services - whether you are sure you believe, sure you don't believe or not sure either way!

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details here) for our Sunday Service starting at 10am. For your first visit, It helps to arrive 10-15 minutes early to get a parking spot and a seat in time for the service to start. When you arrive, you will be greeted by one of our sidespersons who will give you a service booklet and a hymn book.

You are welcome to join in as much as you like - or just to listen quietly if you prefer.

There is no need to book.

You are equally welcome to wear a mask or not.

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access (via the south door), and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There is an accessible toilet at the west end of the church.

After the service

We serve tea, coffee and biscuits. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. All refreshments are free.

What about my kids?

At All Saints, we believe that children are an important part of the church. The grace of God’s covenant and the promise of God’s Spirit extend not just to us, but also to our children. We want to follow the example of Jesus, who said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them” (Matthew 19:14).

We therefore welcome children at all our services, and we encourage them to participate in our worship. Of course, we realize that babies and young children sometimes need a break for feeding and so on. We therefore have a children's corner where parents can take children when necessary. But please don’t worry if your little one makes a bit of noise – our priority is to remain together as a body when our Lord meets with us.
