Our chapel seats 250 people with additional built-in seating both front and back, and standing room for a further 50 people.
The building is air-conditioned to give warmth in winter and comfort in summer. Wheelchair access is at the front of the chapel.
The adjoining car park has space for a limited number of vehicles, with street parking on Ormond Road and Wi Pere Street. Immediate family are invited to park adjacent to the front entry to the chapel, where there is space for two to three vehicles.
There is a modern keyboard available, and we can arrange an organist to play your chosen hymns.
We can play a wide range of music and audiovisual formats through an excellent sound system. A projector and screen are built in, and the service can also be viewed on a large screen in the adjoining courtyard.
There are three built-in cameras which can be used for recording or livestreaming the service. A Livestream is a live video broadcast of a funeral over the internet from Evans Chapel. It means you can watch and hear the funeral from anywhere, as long as you have a computer and high-speed internet connection. The broadcast begins about 15 minutes before the start of the service. Funerals are only broadcast with the permission of the family. Livestream is a free service.
