The Facilities at St Peter's, Forsbrook
English church buildings have been widely used by communities for centuries; in medieval times they were the location for local meetings and even markets in some cases. St Peter's, Forsbrook, is in Cheadle Road, Blythe Bridge; and is available to hire now.
We have recently had extension built, and can now offer improved facilities. All church rooms are carpeted throughout, and benefit from an effective central heating system.
The Lower Welcome Room is the first room you enter, and benefits from a hatch to the kitchen. The room is 32sqm (320sqft) and can seat up to 40 people, or 24 around the collapsible tables.
The kitchen includes: a fridge, a freezer, an electric cooker with 4 hobs, and a hot drinks water boiler. There is also a microwave, a kettle, many pots and pans, and abundant crockery. There are two washing up and preparation sinks, and a hand-washing sink. There are extensive worktops.
There are three toilets off the Lower Welcome Room, one suitable for people with disabilities. An office adjoins the toilets, which is also much used for storage; it may be available for hire in some circumstances.
There are two rooms upstairs. The Large Room is 33sqm (330sqft) and can seat up to 40 people, or 30 around tables. The Small Room is 15sqm (150sqft) can seat up to 12 people (a table could be included).
For large gatherings the Church Worship Area is available. It seats about 160 people on wooden chairs with cloth seats – plus a few more could go in the choir stalls if appropriate! The chairs can be moved to create a large open area, or to accommodate up to 100 around tables.
There is a built in sound system and projector screen.
