The Crossway is the building adjacent to St Stephen’s. There are three rooms available to hire for private or commercial events and functions. We do not hire out rooms on Sunday mornings.

The Oak Room

The Oak Room is the largest room in the Crossway, located on the upper floor. It is light and airy, with a wooden floor. The Oak Room can be divided into two smaller rooms if required.
