INFORMATION FOR PROPERTY BOOKINGS

Annerley Baptist has a number of rooms and areas that are available for use by individuals and groups.

There are also a number of regular bookings in place which may mean that your preferred time or date may not be available.

The areas are:

Main Hall – large hall with stage able to accommodate up to 150 people depending on your configuration. Table and chairs are available if you wish to have a sit down meal. There is also a kitchen including fridges, cooktop, oven, urn, frypans, microwaves, crockery and cutlery. If you require the kitchen as well as the hall area then an additional facility fee applies. The kitchen can be closed if not required. The hall is not airconditioned but ceiling fans are provided for cooling. A small PA system is available as well as a piano.

Under “Mahlua” (house next door) – small hall for up to 40 people. It does have a small kitchen (including stove, urn and microwave) as well as tables and chairs. There is access to the playground area. Pedestal fans are provided for cooling.

Children’s hall – this building is designed for small groups of up to 20 and is adjacent to the playground area making is ideal for groups with children.

Board room – suitable for up to 15 where you just require a meeting room. It does have a whiteboard and a TV to attach to a laptop. A projector can also be provided.

Church Sanctuary – this is available for weddings and funerals or for a congregation which does not have a building of their own. The seating capacity is 200-250. You would need to provide your own sound system or arrangements for one of our members to assist with the AV requirements (which may incur additional cost). If you require live music we have a piano, electronic piano and drums but you would need to provide your own musicians. This area is not airconditioned but has ceiling fans.

A cleaning bond may be required depending on the type of event particularly if food is served. It is the hirer’s responsibility to clean after use and remove rubbish.

NO ALCHOHOL IS TO BE CONSUMED ON THE PREMISES AND SMOKING IS RESTRICTED TO OUTDOOR AREAS WITHIN GOVERNMENT PRESCRIBED DISTANCES. No smoking in the playground area.

Our insurance does not cover outside groups who hire the property – THERFEORE YOU MUST HAVE PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE AND PROVIDE A COPY BEFORE ANY BOOKING IS ACCEPTED. NO EXCEPTIONS. FAILURE TO PROVIDE THIS MAY MEAN YOUR EVENT IS CANCELLED AND THE VENUE GIVEN TO ANOTHER HIRER. Should you require details of companies providing Public Liability insurance we can supply some details.

A hire agreement form will need to be completed once the insurance details have been provided. A completed application form does not necessarily assume that the booking will be accepted.

We generally require that payment is made prior to the event however in some cases an invoice will be provided after the event in the case of an organisation that requires a tax invoice. Bank details are included on the application form.

Arrangements will be made for the opening of the area by one of the Church members. Keys are not normally provided for casual or one off events. A key bond will be required if a key is provided.

Toilets are provided however if you have a large group you may be wise to provide your own toilet paper in case the amount provided is exhausted.

A cancellation fee may be charged if short notice is given.

Parking for attendees is provided from Lambton Street which is at the rear of the property. Four disabled car spaces are available which can be accessed from Ipswich Road. If you need to deliver equipment or food etc then you should also use the Ipswich Road driveway (Hungry Jack’s side) but once unloaded then your vehicle should be removed to the rear car park. No parking in Hungry Jack’s car park

Should you require access to a disabled toilet then one is available under the Main Hall. 

There may be other groups using the property at the same time. We ask that due consideration is given to other users as well as our neighbours. Excessive noise or loud music will not be tolerated.

Children must be supervised at all times.
