LBC Facilities

LBC offers members and the community excellent contemporary quality facilities with a car park. Our large comfortable air-conditioned sanctuary can be extended into a rear hall to accommodate  the community for the High Holy Days services. At other times the hall, with an adjacent (non-meat) kitchen, is available for receptions, events, drama, dancing, and may be hired. The kitchen is newly renovation and modern, and with our halls, available for hire.

Our smaller hall and adjacent library accommodate the ‘Leo Baeck Arts Centre’, which hosts several exhibitions annually. The small hall includes a kitchenette, classrooms and offices, as well as a ‘Room of Prayer’ (our smaller sanctuary).

All buildings are well equipped with toilets and baby change facilities, and are fully accessible for wheelchair users.

Our central courtyard is framed by a garden and courtyard barbeque used for weddings and other significant and community events.

Additionally, our large central courtyard is equipped with a barbeque, with tables and chairs available for use. Ample car parking at the rear of the building and ramp access throughout the site makes the setting accessible to all.
