To find the Church hall from the station, head towards the centre of town, passing the Verandah Bar Super Pub on your left. Go straight over the main road at the traffic lights and walk a few yards until the church is on your left, take the path on the left that leads through the churchyard and it will take you to the church hall - an squat, ugly building across the green from the church.
