With the growing demand for more local and commercial alternative spaces to Worship in, we have seen many Church Fellowships successfully launch by hiring School Halls and other facilities with us.
After starting in smaller facilities with us, such as classrooms, often Church Fellowships will grow in numbers and move into larger spaces more suitable to their needs.
We have even had some outgrow our Partner School’s capacity completely and become big enough to require their own dedicated places of worship full-time.
In this blog, we will take you through the facility options there are available to hire with us to help grow your Church Fellowship.
5- 30 Attendees – Classrooms
Classrooms are flexible low-cost, low-capacity spaces that are perfect for Church Fellowships just getting started in the community and low on initial attendee numbers.
Classrooms are great spaces for study groups, smaller readings, and Sunday school-type services as well. As with all our other facilities, Classrooms are available for hire on Evenings, Weekends, and across School Holidays.
30-80 Attendees – Activity and Dance Studios
After some time in a Classroom setting, you might find your Church Fellowship has grown in attendance numbers and it might be more fitting to move to a slightly bigger location. Our range of Activities and Dance Studios would be the perfect step up for this move.
These Studio spaces are available to be hired in a variety of setups. Our staff will be happy to help get you how you require them to look, perhaps in a theatre style for preaching or with chairs in a semi-circle for more of a group activity.
80-120 Attendees – Smaller Theatres and Gyms
Other alternative venues for growing Church Fellowships, that do not quite have the need for our bigger facilities, include our Smaller Theatres and our Smaller Gymnasiums. We have a variety of Theatres including traditional Lecture Theatres and more modern spaces as well.
Perhaps not always associated with traditional Worship spaces, our Gymnasiums are quite popular to hire as they can again be arranged however is best for your booking and there is always a variety of equipment to use in these locations as well if you should need it.
200 + Attendees – Auditoriums / Main Halls
These are the highest capacity, worship-appropriate, spaces that we have to offer across our Partner Schools. If you have now outgrown the Classrooms, Studio Spaces, and Theatres from before, then these Auditoriums and Main Halls would be perfect to host your larger Church Fellowship group.
Available as well to hire for one-off large worship events, these Auditoriums and Main Halls often come with a variety of seating options and often specialised equipment/room features such as projectors, stage area, plus audio and lighting options.
500 + Attendees – Your Own Space
After growing your Church Fellowship to this many regular attendees, it may now become difficult for us to host your worship events across our Partner Schools. Of course, if it works for your Church Fellowship, you can look to split your bookings across multiple facilities in our schools.
Alternatively, it may now be time for your Church Fellowship to look for your own, permanent, home. We would of course wish you the best and be sad to see you go, but as we have done in the past with other groups, we will aim to keep in touch should you ever need any of our venues again!
