Looking to hire a space for a community event, kids party, art exhibition, dance event, presentation or whatever? We even have a well maintained pipe-organ and great acoustics for those music or choir recitals. For more on the pipe Organ see here: https://www.ohta.org.au/confs/NZ/StStephensPonsonby.html
We have various options at reasonable prices in a great location. If you’re thinking long term or a one-off event we’d love to hear from you.

If your event is smaller and requires less space than our middle hall is perfect for up to 60 people. It contains a kitchenette and even a tuned piano. Groups like weight-watchers and Vox Pops (http://voxpop.org.nz/) have made long-term use of this hall but there are still spaces available.

We also have a meeting room for small boards or groups to hire. This room has hot drink facilities and can seat up to 20 people.
For weddings click here. If you would like to hire the church sanctuary for any reason other than a wedding, this is also available under negotiation. Our sanctuary is perfect for choir or music performance (including well maintained pipe-organ).
Please note that St Stephen’s is very much an active church with a worshipping community. Therefore, hiring our worship space (sanctuary) will meet different criteria than our other spaces. Proposed events need to align with the tikanga (culture) of our sacred space and be approved by our leadership team.
