Great Park Community Centre is the dynamic active hub of the community and a venue for the CHURCH in the PARK.

Revd. Ruth Hewett has been the Chair of trustees of the Community Centre this year.

CHURCH in the PARK supports the community centre activities, promoting itself as an integral part of the community: for example the Bakeoff, residents groups on the Great Park, the Christmas and Easter craft fairs and Community BBQ.

The local church is just one part of this network of caring people. We work in partnership with these agencies.

The Church is always keen to build bridges with others, whether individuals or groups, who care about how we live together and care for each other.

Please get in touch if you think we can work together for the good of the community.

Some of the social issues facing us in this place are:

Loneliness and Isolation

This can be a big issue for many people, for young and for old. The church here is investing in and developing ways and opportunities to meet socially in the Great Park.
