Free WiFi throughout the building

Our rooms are not usually available to hire on Sundays but we may be able to make exceptions for Ceremonies such as Weddings and Baptisms. 

Unfortunately at present we are not taking any bookings for parties that have not already been confirmed. This is due to a minority of hirers who have not treated our premises with the respect and consideration that we expect.                

For an indication of possible room availability in the near future see our Calendar.

Hirers must be aware of our Safeguarding Policy and accept our Terms and Conditions of Use.

The Oakwood Church building and grounds are owned by The Methodist Church so NO Smoking, NO Vaping, NO E-Cigarettes and NO Alchohol anywhere within our building or grounds.
