St Patrick’s – After service chat and refreshments in the church hall – next door
Tell us if you are new to the area as we try to make sure everyone feels welcome and don’t worry, you won’t be left standing with no-one to talk to.
Finding your way to the Parochial Hall after the service is over
Make your way to the front of the church and exit by the door on the left. It’s an old building so you do end up walking along a corridor and through a small meeting room before you reach the Parochial Hall – Follow others heading that way or ask for directions.
Toilets are located in St Patrick’s in the Parochial Hall, just ask for directions.
Whilst in St John’s Church the toilet is located to the side of the entrance hall.

Access into St Patrick’s Church. At the front of the church there is the option of either 12 steps with supporting handrail, or a wide inclining paved pathway without steps to enable wheelchair users to obtain access into the church.
The Parochial Hall at St Patrick’s Church can be entered via the car park in Edward Road and is wheelchair friendly, allowing access into the hall. However, to go from the Hall into the Church building involves a few steps.
Access to St John’s Church. There are two options for entry into the churchyard:
- The first entrance faces the car park and involves descending down approximately eight stone steps. Handrail support is provided. Thereafter the path and entrance is all on one level.
- For wheelchairs users there is steps-free access into the church. From the main road, follow the lane to the left of the Church and you will see almost immediately a gate on your right offering access to the church entrance.
St Patrick’s Church has a small carpark located adjoining the Parochial Hall in Edward Road. It can accommodate 6/7 cars maximum, as access must be maintained for other drivers through St Patrick’s Avenue, which runs alongside the carpark.
St John’s Church has a large car park located on the opposite side of the main road, facing the church. It can comfortably accommodate up to 50 cars.
Caution should be exercised when crossing the road and driving out of the carpark as traffic tends to be fast along this stretch of the road.
