St Margaret's Church Centre

The Church Centre provides a large hall, comfortable lounge, well-equipped kitchen and other meeting rooms. 

Located on Bolton Lane, almost opposite the Church and next to St Margaret's School, the address is 22 Bolton Lane, Ipswich IP4 2BT. 

It is used for a variety of church events, by church-based groups and other community groups.  Although busy, we are often able to accept bookings for regular and one-off events. 

Parties are generally confined to those for primary school children or younger. The premises are in a residential area and are not suitable for evening parties with music; all events must finish by 11pm. There are restrictions on the consumption of alcohol.

Parking within the Church Centre is extremely limited and only available with specific authorisation.  A map showing the local car parks can be viewed by clicking on the link below.
