Bargates Hall is our church hall, behind the church building. Formerly the infant school for the town, the building was bought and converted for use by the church.
The hall has been extensively modernised. A scheme of regular maintenance and up-grading is always in progress with the aim of keeping and improving the standard of our facility. It is in frequent use by church and community groups.
To book the Hall please ring Mr Wayne Edwards Bargates Hall Manager on 07800 569 801

Use by the Whitchurch Food Bank:
The Food Bank is using a room converted for use as storage and office, and the kitchen and main room during two sessions per week on Tuesday and Friday mornings. In 2015 due to the success of this wonderful service to the community, the Foodbank has rented and renovated the old out-building adjacent to Bargates Hall. A wonderful outcome for both parties.
All major renovation work has now been completed and was made possible by:-
The Big Lottery Fund
Whitchurch area Local Joint Committee
The Millichope Fund
