PARISH CENTRE AT HTK
Holy Trinity Anglican Church, a National Trust listed bluestone building on the corner of Pakington and High streets Kew, has been serving the local community since 1863. Recently completed is the modern Parish Centre adjoining the church. The Parish Centre includes halls which are available for hire and are fully wheelchair accessible. Public transport is close by, including the 45 and 109 trams, and buses.
The Church is not available to hire for parties or private events.
The Hall (within the contemporary building in the pictures here) in the Parish Centre may be available
Hall A can accommodate 80 people.
Hall A can be combined with the adjacent hall B to accommodate 120 people.
These spaces are carpeted and are available for suitable celebrations, functions, dinners, meetings, conferences and workshops.
Wedding receptions and funeral wakes may be booked to follow weddings and funerals which have been conducted in Holy Trinity.
A fully equipped professional kitchen, with servery, adjoins hall A. There is also access to a large attractive garden area. All persons seeking to hire these halls must confirm with the centre manager that the purpose for which the spaces are to be used are in keeping with the fact that these are on church premises, and church guidelines must be adhered to. Failure to do so will result in forfeiting of bond payment.
