St. Paul’s Church Hall, Enbrook Park, Sandgate
Having no Meeting House, Meeting for Worship is held at:
St Paul’s Church Hall
The hall is a wooden building situated in Saga’s Enbrook Park grounds, a little up the hill from the church (which is near the war memorial).
Car parking: free, on-road: on the side-road turning right immediately above the church hall (but not in church car park); also in the Saga car park at the top of the hill, beyond the Saga buildings (but not on the road leading directly to the Saga buildings).
Bus routes: 16 & 102 between Folkestone and Hythe stop beside St Paul’s church.
Whilst access to the church hall is step-free and wheelchair accessible, the paths to the hall from the main road, and from the car parking, are steeply inclined. For people with mobility difficulties who are able to negotiate two steps, the church hall has toilets. However, there are no step-free or wheelchair-accessible toilets in the hall. By prior arrangement, a wheelchair accessible toilet may be accessed down the hill in the church.
Folkestone Meeting circulates news and announcements by means of the Meeting’s e-mail list. To enquire about this, contact the Assistant Clerk (Contact Details).
