Hall and Meeting Rooms

The parish hall is actually a unique and historic crypt area underneath the church, accessed from a stairwell at the rear of the Church and also from the outside, down the driveway by the parish office.

It is a large, carpeted area of around 242 square metres with a good-sized catering kitchen and servery. The space works well for a range of functions. It is ideal for wedding, baptism and funeral gatherings.

There are four good-sized meeting rooms seating from 10 up to 16 people.

Our parish hall/crypt and meeting rooms are available for hire when not required for parish events.

Please contact Catherine at the parish office for more information on 09 379 0624.
