The church is on the corner of Portrush Road and Fisher Street, Tusmore.
A plan showing the ground floor and relevant first floor rooms can be emailed to enquirers.
The building has a spacious, very pleasant foyer containing tables and chairs. People attending functions can be served refreshments from a well equipped Servery which is on one side of the foyer. In addition there is a large and well equipped kitchen, between the foyer and the Hall. People attending functions at the church can also obtain lunches at the nearby Burnside Village or other local cafes.

There are 31 on-site car parks, including two designated disabled. We suggest to large groups that these are used by those who are frail.
Audio, visual and lighting equipment
We are privileged to have high quality AVL equipment. Our operators are trained in the use of this equipment. Hirers may be able to negotiate terms under which one of our operators will operate this equipment. Regular hirers may be able to arrange for competent persons they nominate to be trained. Otherwise, we will not allow any other person to operate our equipment. Hirers are welcome to provide their own equipment
