Nestled in the leafy neighbourhood of Church Square, Addington, The Addington Haven was a church hall that is now a friendly venue with three rooms available to hire, including a carpeted hall that seats 80.
Church Square has a quiet, calm atmosphere and we welcome inquiries from groups or individuals that are looking for this quality in a venue. It is not available for private parties where alcohol would be significant. It does have ramp access but no accessible toilet yet.
Currently the Addington Haven has a wide range of users:
-a community choir
-natural therapy training courses
-other training courses
-children's birthday parties
It could also be used for funeral or marriage ceremonies.
The three spaces are:
A large carpeted hall known as "The Big Room"
The big room seats up to about 80 but also feels comfortable with a small group. It is carpeted and has overhead heaters that can be set on a timer. This room is great for workshops and trainings where people need to move about. It is a nice performance space and is also suitable for meditation as it has lights with dimmers. There is a mini stage and a couple of really good walls for projecting onto.
The "Meditation Room"
The meditation room is a square room that seats a maximum of about 18. If you were using massage tables in your training you could fit about 6 - 8. It has a mini stage and is carpeted. The meditation room has amazing windows onto the garden on two sides.
The smallest space is called "The Singing Room". During the daytime this room is used for singing lessons and in the evening it is used for meetings. It could also be available on Monday mornings and Wednesday mornings for an ongoing tenant and might suit a counselor or someone who has individual meetings with clients. The Singing Room comfortably seats about 10 people. It is light and has some views to the garden.
The rooms can be hired individually, or the whole premises can be hired exclusively.
Minimum booking fees apply with $50 +GST for the smaller rooms and $60 +GST for the hall. Otherwise the charge is $16+GST for the smaller rooms per hour and $18 +GST for the hall per hour.
