The Lawn Chapel (closes on 31 May 2022)

Capacity at The Lawn Chapel is up to 60 people. However, we would like families to be aware that this is a particularly small chapel and when at capacity of 60, space between guests is limited. For families wishing to maintain a degree of social distancing, we would advise choosing an alternate venue or limiting attendance to 35 people.

We would encourage guests to wear face mask whilst inside the chapel however, this is no longer mandatory.

The sanitising station will remain in place at the chapel entrance and a strict cleaning schedule will be adhered to between services.

Families are welcome to view the chapel prior to booking. Please call us on 01707 357000 to arrange this.
