Llantarnam Community Church Hall

Did you know that the Church Hall was builtFoundation Stone Laid by Vicar & Church wardens
from public donations in 1922 for the use of
the church and the community. There are
four foundation stones set in the front of the
building (see pictures to the right and below).

They indicate the coming together of
the community and church involvement at
the time. It is the only public hall facility in
Llantarnam.Foundation Stone laid by Edward Steer


The Hall is used regularly by members of the community of all ages from nursery school children to a company club for retired staff. Functions include, quiz nights, dancing classes
, birthday parties and of course for Church activities and the Sunday School .

The Church Hall has been brought up Foundation Stone Laid by  W F Dawson
to the standards required by the Disability
Discrimination Act (DDA) and current
safety requirements.

Stage 1 of this project was completed in
August 2005. The congregation raised
£11,000, for this stage including re-newing
wall ties, installing a damp course and treating
the roof timbers. The work will preserve the
building Foundation Stone Laid by C F Harding so that we can look to the future
with confidence.

The second stage was carried out with
a grant provided by the Welsh Assembly
this has enabled the installation of toilet facilities
for disabled persons. at a cost of over £63,000 and was completed in November 2006.


The new extension was officially opened at the 'farewell' ceremony to Fr Gareth on his last day as Vicar at St Michael's. The following picture shows the development team that guided the extension to its completion with the architect and builder.

Further stages will be necessary to complete the plans for the total renovation of the Hall including improved storage and car parking. The area to the rear of the Hall has been re-surfaced and is used as an extension to the car park. It is hoped that the remainder of the work may be completed during 2008.
