All three churches have halls with catering facilities attached.
In addition, St Mark's has a wheelchair-accessible toilet, and parking for up to 18 cars (with a huge public car-park just opposite, and up to 2 hours free street parking nearby) .
St Nicholas' has a wheelchair-accessible toilet to all hall and Church visitors, and parking for around 15 cars, plus free street parking nearby).
St Francis' has a wheelchair-accessible toilet and ample free street parking around the church.
All three churches are also very happy to let-out their worship spaces as a venue for concerts and other suitable activities (including those of other community-based organisations). St Mark's, in particular, has a reputation as a great concert venue. It also has a Grade 1 listed Hill, Norman & Beard pipe-organ which adds considerably to any choral or orchestral ensemble.
