Church House Facilities

Church House in Lübbecke offers great conference facilities and is a perfect venue to support residential training sessions for a wide range of military and civilian courses.
There is a highly reliable Wi-Fi Internet coverage throughout the House and two purpose built classrooms each with audio-visual equipment.  It is a great base from which to explore the history of the area, and has a mini-museum, which tells the history of the House, from its beginnings as a training school and Hitler Youth Hostel, built by the National Socialist Party of Westphalia between 1937-1938. 

Sports and Recreation

Courses on offer include a 20 checkpoint Orienteering Course over challenging forest terrain. There is top of the range archery equipment, soft air target pistol shooting, a fitness suite and a brand new cardiovascular training room, mountain biking, tennis, pool and snooker and authority has been granted to have a children's club room and play area.

If you would like to stay overnight, there are 52 beds, including a self catering luxury flat, available for use by service families and the downstairs VIP rooms are each equipped with satellite television. Church House is renowned for its catering and bar facilities, which offer extremely competitive rates.

Church House still offers the best venue for any residential training in BFG and bookings are now being taken from military groups in the UK. It will be open until at least December 2017. Unfortunately all weekend bookings for 2016 have been filled, but there are still plenty of spaces during the week.
