The parish hall is located on Highfield Approach, Ipswich, on the opposite side of the road from the church itself. (///hurt.unions.begun). It stands in its own car park which is also used by those attending church services.
The hall was constructed in the early 1960s and was officially blessed and opened by Bishop Leo Parker, Bishop of Northampton, in 1963.
