The demand for space to Worship has never been higher. With an expanding population and a growing multi-cultural mix of different faiths living and practicing together, there has never been a better to time to look for alternative venues to regularly host your church service.
A solution for this lack of traditional commercial space is to consider hiring facilities in your local School through us at Schools Plus.
In this blog, we will explore the 10 Reasons why School Hall hire can benefit your Church Fellowship.
1) Staff Members on Site to Help
At Schools Plus we set ourselves apart from other competitors by having on-site Staff for every booking at every school. Our staff are there to ensure your safety and offer helpful assistance including giving safety demonstrations and helping you find your way around the school.
2) Better Locations, in the Heart of the Community
Schools are often in prime locations that other temporary hires cannot give you. Many of our city-based schools are in central locations with constant foot flow and access to busy transport hubs. Running your events in locations like these could greatly benefit your attendees, making it easier for them to attend regularly.
3) Opening and Lockup Handled by us
Hiring through us allows you to relax. You no longer have to think about getting in early to open up the building or staying late to make sure it’s been properly closed. Our Staff handles these concerns by being on-site before your booking starts and will be the last to leave after you’ve finished.
4) Fully Equipped Facilities for Sunday Schools
It’s not only Halls that you can hire through Schools Plus. We offer a range of other facilities including Theatres, Main Halls, Activity Studios and Classrooms. Our schools kindly allow our customers to have full use of the classrooms, making them great settings for Sunday Schools or smaller Worship events.
5) No Building Maintenance concerns
It can be expensive to maintain a Church or similar place of worship. However, when hiring through Schools Plus, these general maintenance/wear and tear concerns are gone! We work together with the School to maintain all facilities so they are always ready to use when you book with us.
6) Flexibility to cancel within 7 days’ notice
Our Schools Plus cancellation policy, which you can read further about here, allows you the flexibility to cancel a booking with us as long as you give us 7 days’ notice.
7) Simple Payment System
We require a payment in the form of direct debit on the 1st day of the month. There won’t be any other payments that crop up. For further information on our payment system, read here.
8) Easier Contracts than Commercial Options
If you’ve looked previously to hire a Church or a similar place of worship in a commercial area, then you might have been put off by the leaseholder agreements or similar long-term commercial letting agreements in order to proceed.
Our Schools Plus contract is much simpler when compared to this and is comparatively flexible as well. Please get in touch to find out more.
9) Capacity for Events
Many of our Partner Schools do have the capacity to host larger events. There are Main Halls and Theatres available and many of the Schools come with large car parks to help accommodate your attendees. For further info on Events with us at Schools Plus, visit this link here.
10) Storage Space for Your Equipment
Most of our Partner Schools, for an additional charge, will be able to offer you some sort of storage space so that your group can leave certain items behind. This can go a long way to help reduce the time it takes to set up each time you arrive for a booking.
Whether your congregation is big or small, we have facilities to accommodate everyone. A number of our existing Worship bookings started out as a small group of 10 and have now grown into a congregation of 200 plus.
