Church House is the Meeting Hall and facilities of St Nicholas Church and Alcester Minster Churches administration.

 More information about Alcester Minster and its churches is at www.alcesterminster.org

To book ring 01789 763723.

The hall may be hired for community events both independently and in conjunction with events in St Nicholas Church.

The redecorated
hall (cap. 60 seats) has a refurbished parquet floor and is complemented by a new well-appointed kitchen with adjoining hatch.

All other facilities are accessed from the side passageway to avoid passing through the hall when in use.

Modern toilets for use by the church are at the rear in what had been the former old rectory stables. They include a toilet for disabled and are accessible step-free via the Church passageway off Butter Street to the right of Church House.

Through the back door (follow signs) is the Alcester Minster office open weekday mornings for the Minster Administrator (details on signs), and upstairs two meeting rooms for hire.

The Upper Room has an 8 chair board table for committee use.

The Hayloft Room is a fully flexible space suitable for committees, training groups.  Both rooms display the re-exposed historic timber frames.

The refurbishment project  by The Church House Development Committee completed in 2016 extended over eight years, and has created a central heritage site to provide modern facilities for the Alcester community.  It has revealed timber frames of what may have been two 15th century houses, a grand dwelling house with a more utilitarian one behind it, subsequently joined together. By the end of 19th Century the front had become the larger of two cottages with the back converted for stables. Just over a century later the recent work has combined the property into one again, fitting it with 21st century facilities. More details are on the History page.  To inspect the timber frames please ring 01789 763509.

Donation details for Church House project are on About and Donors pages.
