The church grounds make for a pleasant picnic area in warm weather. But for gigs, the venue is hit or miss. Sound bounces all around the building in a way that makes it difficult to hear very well. It's much better on the ground level than in the upper pews, but still, this isn't the best church in London to see a band. (Of course, as a venue for the religiously minded and the non-musically interested, the experience may be completely different.)
