Church Hall

Church Hall

Built with the stone and roof timbers from the original church in Summertown, St Michael's Church Hall has two exceptionally large and light rooms available for hire.

Used by a huge range of groups locally, from Karate to Craft Fairs, from Drama Groups to Drawing Classes, the facilities offered are very convenient and there is on-site parking too.

The Hall is situated on the corner of Banbury and Portland Roads. Its postcode is OX2 7EZ.
See Google map.

The Upper Hall, with a raised stage area (23m2), has an approximate area of 125m2 and seats 175 theatre-style, and the Lower Hall is approximately 90m2, seating 120 theatre-style. Both Halls have modestly-equipped kitchens.

Lock-up garages and designated parking spaces in this prime location in the heart of Summertown occasionally become available for rent to local residents or businesses. Please email the hall administrator (see below).
