Grove Street Methodist Church has been at the heart of Retford for over 130 years and during this time has served the surrounding community not only as a church but as a venue for local groups and societies to meet. The 600-seat church with pipe organ, digital piano, hearing-loop system, audio and IT equipment (including digital projector and screen) is ideal for concerts and lectures. (The sanctuary is currently closed awaiting structural works)
There are also a number of rooms which can be used for a variety of purposes:
A spacious foyer,complete with coffee bar, can be used for different functions and currently hosts a Friday internet café.
Chapelgate Hall is a large, flexible modern space seating up to 100, which can be arranged in theatre/lecture or banquet settings.
