The Centre is an important community resource offering meeting and counselling rooms, some permanent offices and space for church and leisure activities. A large number of people, from many groups and organisations, pass through our doors, every day – on weekdays the centre is open from 8.45 am to 10.pm.
The Centre offers a wide choice of halls and rooms, ranging from the grandeur of the St Aidan’s Hall to the informality of a small meeting room, and are suitable for many uses: Conferences, Training Sessions, Committee Meetings, Children’s Groups, Exercise, Tutorials, Counselling and much more! The Centre is also home to three local charities and is used as an Arts and Social Centre by many groups.
The Centre is at the same location as the Church and you can find us here
