Facilities

The historic, spacious and central setting of St John’s church complex makes it an ideal location to host weekly classes,  occasional meetings, or an indoor sporting or artistic event.

St John’s parish halls are available for hire on a regular basis or for single occasions to approved organisations or groups, subject to production of a current public liability insurance certificate with minimum of $5,000,000 liability.

Stair lifts, accessible from the entrance to the halls off the upper carpark at the rear of the church, give easy access to the War Memorial Hall and the Upper Room. Toilet facilities are available near the entrance.

Note that limited car parking is available in the church grounds. St. John’s is conveniently located near the Gordon train station and its adjacent public car park.

Please check out the links below and contact the Parish Administrator for further details and cost for rental. Tables and chairs are available for use in all rooms. Setting up of the venue to the hirer’s requirements and restoration to its pre-use condition is the responsibility of the hirer.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.

WAR MEMORIAL HALL

Main Hall

This large hall comfortably seats 200 and has a full-width stage accessible from the floor of the Hall, as well as from the side and rear of the stage itself. The Hall has fans, a basketball hoop, and a mirrored wall. Use of the installed sound and projection system is available upon request.
