Cloisters‘The Cloisters’ is a modern extension to the ancient Church of St Mary’s in Stansted, Kent.  Completed in late 2015, this delightful building comprises a hall that can seat up to 50, a well-equipped kitchenette, and toilets with disabled and baby changing facilities.

The Cloisters provides the church with a comfortable, modern meeting/family room, and is wheelchair accessible. An audio-visual system relays services and events live from the church.
