The Hope Centre Wood Lane
Until recently, the Hope Centre on Wood Lane was used as a base for all the community support we provide. In January 2023 the Food Pantry and accompanying support moved into the Hideaway. This has given us a great opportunity to use the Wood Lane base for a whole range of community support.
The space is open with seating, tables and shelving, and the separated Brew Bar at the back provides a space for private conversations and refreshments.
Through the week the Hope Centre will be used by the Hope team, the Hideaway team and partner organisations for a whole range of community support.
The Hope Centre can be hired by community groups to deliver courses and services in the community.
We're just putting the initial programme together. Check back here for a timetable of events, courses and activities!
