1. What sort of people are in The Chapel?

The Chapel is an incredible open plan, air-conditioned office space designed for small businesses. The environment is warm, friendly and relaxed. Because the terms are so easy and flexible The Chapel appeals to people who would rather not work from home, preferring the company of like-minded, positive people in a workplace that is a million times better than the typically sterile serviced office.

We have companies that work in the media, advertising, PR and marketing industries; there are photographers, writers and freelancers plus digital and web companies, data specialists, event management and even an accountant or two! Business opportunities, partnerships and collaborations have all been forged in The Chapel.

 

2. Sounds great, so how much does it cost?

Desk hire is just £399+VAT per month paid in advance. There are no extra costs for meeting rooms or any of the other facilities such as reception and kitchen facilities are also included. Telephone calls and franking are charged at cost.



3. What about other charges for electricity and cleaning?

There are none. All utilities, cleaning, maintenance, decoration and furniture are included. So are the costs of heating, lighting and the air conditioning too. Common areas are cleaned including floors, and bins are emptied nightly. You’re right, it is an incredible deal!


 

4. So how long do I have to commit for and what if I want to leave?

One month is all you commit to. You pay monthly in advance and whereas serviced offices charge joining fees and require an upfront deposit we don’t. We have a simple agreement and ask that you give us a month's notice if you’re going to leave.

 

 

5. Can I hot-desk or rent by the week?

No. The Chapel only has workspaces for monthly rental.

 

 

6. And what are the opening hours?

The Chapel opens for business at 09.00 and closes at 18.00, however you’re welcome to work later and over the weekend too if you wish – there won’t be any support team there though and the cleaners will be around after hours.

 

 

7. So when can I move in?


If there’s a workstation available you can come today. Just bring your laptop and with our complimentary wireless network, you can start work immediately.

 

 

8. What’s it like working with lots of other people, is it very noisy?

With massive high ceilings, an open plan set up and workstations in clusters you might think it’s a noisy place but perhaps because it’s a converted church people tend to speak more quietly than in a typically loud, modern, boxy office. We set all the phones to the lowest level ring tone and one of our very few ‘rules’ is that all mobiles are turned to silent or vibrate or, better still, diverted to your personal desk phone (we can show you how to do this). There are four private meeting rooms open to everyone in The Chapel plus ‘meeting room five’ which is a picnic area on the lawn at the back. Because The Chapel is such a special place to work everyone wants to keep it that way and consequently the environment is buzzy without being loud and frantic.

 


9. Do you provide any technical or secretarial support?

We will make sure that you’re connected to the internet, and your phone is set up properly. We’ll show you how to make a great coffee from our ‘bean to cup’ machine and how to book meeting rooms. Our Chapel team greet and announce visitors and distribute the post to pigeon holes each day. There is a franking machine (charged at cost only) you can use and the Royal Mail collects directly from The Chapel every day. We do have a number of excellent partners who we can refer you to for all other support and there’s nearly always someone in The Chapel that can help in an emergency.

 


10. What security is in place at The Chapel?

Outside opening hours the doors will be locked and entry requires someone to physically open the door. Dedicated keys are available. The Chapel is alarmed.

 

 

11. Is there any storage space?

Yes, a limited amount and some people have a storage box or two that they put under their desk each evening.

 


12. Can I park at The Chapel?
The Chapel has 36 parking spaces, some of which can be double parked. Parking is available subject to space being available. It is rarely if ever an issue. We have visitor parking and spaces especially for deliveries.



13. What's it like working in The Chapel?
Why not ask people who work here:

"The Chapel is a professional and well run exceptional business setting, providing an atmosphere that is very conducive to work in.

The environment allows me to work in a very productive manner and is shared with like-minded fellow professionals.

The Chapel offers a wide variety of business services from basic mail services to diverse meeting space. Customers that arrive at the Chapel are always impressed with this very unique and individual building.

My only complaint is that I never moved in sooner."

"Being self-employed I really struggled working from home. Since moving into The Chapel my business has excelled.  Not only do I have significantly more focus, but the other companies in The Chapel are really friendly and we now use each others' services.  

It is also a deal maker when you can bring clients into The Chapel!"
