St. Martin-in-the-Fields is fortunate in having a fine range of physical facilities, which are made available to and are used by a wide variety of non-church-centred community groups and organizations.
St. Martin’s facilities include a large hall – Congress Hall – and a smaller one – Rowland Hall (named after Rector Emeritus Tim Rowland), plus classrooms, a fine, newly updated kitchen and five washrooms. One of those is wheelchair accessible and located close to the wheelchair-accessible elevator.
Weekdays during school season, our facilities are used by Pinetree Montessori School. But evening sees things change as assorted community groups come in and bring their own buzz.
These groups include Brownies and Sparks, Air Cadets on Flag Days, a Creative Stamping Group, an AA group, and on occasion the local Ratepayers’ Association or a horticultural group.
Generous parking for evening activities is available in the paved church lot, and hall access is at street level from Oban Drive.
Our facilities are our connection and our gateway to the Oakridge community – a gateway that’s always open and offers a warm welcome.
