We welcome enquiries for children's parties for ages 0-12 years on Saturday and Sunday. Other times are subject to availability.

Other Functions

Adult birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, weddings, baby showers, wakes and other one off events and meetings. We do not hire the hall for birthday parties between the ages of 18 and 21. The PAHall Management committee made a decision not to allow parties of this age, in order to protect both the hall from damage and as a courtesy to our village neighbours. It is not our intention to reflect the attitude of Chipstead as a village. The PAHall is managed on behalf of St Magaret's Church, and therefore has repsonsibility to both the church and wider community.

Planning your Visit

New to Church?

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When
We meet at St Margaret’s Church for our Sunday Service starting at 10am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you will be greeted by someone on our Sides Team, please make yourself known, that you are visiting for the first time so that we may give you a welcome pack.
We serve tea, coffee and biscuits after the service from 11.15am. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. All refreshments are free.

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Sides Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There is also a disabled toilet and baby changing facilities.

Our Service
The main service begins at 10am with a warm welcome from one of our team members. We have a mixture of services, comprising of Morning Prayer, Morning Worship, All Together and Holy Communion. Our music is organ and band. We typically have 3 or 4 songs. We then share news and notices, usually about what’s going on in the life of the church. One of our leaders will then give a sermon that is bible based and that we can apply to our everyday life. We then finish with a final worship song. There is always an opportunity to receive private prayer at the end of the service.

What about my children?
We have a great programme lined up for children of all ages:

  • Creche (0 months to 2 years). Children under 6 months are welcome but must be accompanied by their parent/carer at all times.
  • Bubbles (3-5 years)
  • Juniors (6-11 years)
  • Ignite (11-14 years)
  • Youth (14+ years)
Children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service for the welcome, songs, and notices. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. At the end of the notices someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go to their various groups. You will need to go with your children to their groups and register them as part of our child safety policy.

The children’s group activities vary depending on the age but usually there is a friendly welcome, bible stories, testimonies, praying, music, craft, drama, fun games, and free play. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes, usually around 11.15am.

Getting Connected
Small Groups
While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons, and some evenings. Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.
Serving and Volunteering
If you want to get involved in the life of the church and help us, make Sundays run smoothly, you can sign up to serve on a team.
