Diss United Reformed Church

The Sanctuary

As mentioned in these pages, on just one Sunday in four a regular service of worship is held here and the room swells to the sound of hymn tunes accompanied by the fine pipe organ. For the rest of the month this excellent space is available to the wider local community.

In 1997, when the building was redesigned for its role in the 21st century, the acoustics of the Sanctuary were greatly improved making it one of the best halls in the area for music and lectures. There is a basic sound system, complete with induction loop to assist those with suitable hearing aids. Additional sound equipment can be added by arrangement.

The fine oak Cross adorning the north wall may be easily demounted to provide a projection area for visual presentations.

Equipped with a silent under-floor central heating system and with a seating capacity of one hundred and fifty people, this light and tranquil space is the ideal venue for large meetings, exhibitions and recitals. The beautiful screen doors can be folded back to open up to the smaller hall and provide further space if required.

The Sanctuary has its own access to a fully equipped kitchenette, storage and toilets.
