Parish of St Matthew the Apostle,
Douglas, Isle of Man
The two halls were added as a new school to St. Matthew's in 1912. When the church was surrounded by a large population in lower Douglas, several classes occupied both halls.
Over a hundred years later the lower hall is used for activities by "Sunday's Cool" (our present Sunday School)The hall is also the focus of social events throughout the year.
After Mass on Sunday mornings fellowship continues over coffee, tea or sherry in the lower hall. Visitors are always made most welcome.
Our halls have been used by several local societies for choir and amateur dramatics rehearsals and dance classes
Christian hospitality has always been offered by St. Matthew's to visitors. Groups from inner city areas such as Belfast and London have camped in our hall during the Summer months over the years . The group from All Saints New Cross in London continue to visit each year. We've also been pleased to welcome visitors to the Island for the T.T. Races
I f you would like to use our halls please us to enquire about availablity and cost
