Church Hall Renovation

Barraba Parish Hall

Thanks to the work of many faithful volunteers, the Parish Hall has recently been renovated and restored to some of its former glory. Painting has been completed and the floor sanded, sealed and polished. 

The Parish Council has decided to make the hall a formal venue in keeping with its historical significance, not only in the church but also the Barraba community. To that end it is proposed that the hall feature historical photos and memorabilia that reflect God’s faithfulness to his people and how the hall has been used by the church and local community for well over a century. As well, the hall will also feature a library of Christian books and historical records.

Because of its historical significance and its relevance to the local community, it is important that the hall be not just a building of interest, but a venue open and available for community use. As such for both the church and local community the hall shall be a formal meeting room for Parish Council, bible study groups and other local groups. The hall is equipped with a kitchen able to cater for small functions. At the back of the hall is the Parish Office.

It is intended initially to furnish the hall with a large wooden table (8-12 seats), with matching chairs, as well as four wooden book shelves.

If you have a large table or book shelves that you would like to sell or donate for use in the parish hall, then they would be gratefully received. Also if you have any old photos or memorabilia that you would like donate to the hall, they too would be proudly displayed.

Please feel free to visit the hall for an inspection and or discussion and chat.
