It is two years since the building project drew to a close and the new area was beginning to look less like a builders playground and more like a rather smart area. Since the official opening in March 2018, we have seen many pass through the doors and enjoy meeting for coffee, teas and relaxing with friends. THE ARK was given the name as it was a building project, the Ark was a place of protection, refuge and security and the original Ark landed on Mount Ararat!
Many have found this place of safety and security apart from all the other events that take place in the rest of the Community Centre.
At the moment we are open from 10am-1pm Monday to Saturday but have many other events going on throughout the week so please pop in or check our social media sites for daily updates.
We have toys for little ones, high chairs and baby changing facilities, so parents or carers can relax while the little ones play.
On Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 2-4pm, we are open for those who need to chat or feel they may have some struggles. Please come along to our Renew Well-Being cafe. This is a quiet shared space where it is OK not to be OK. It is an opportunity to come and share a hobby, learn a new one or simply to enjoy the quiet space with your favourite brew.
On Thursday evenings, we have an IT Crowd session where you can pop in with your laptop, use our free WiFi and work while enjoying a delicious coffee.
We would love to see you and there is always a friendly face here so please don’t worry about coming on your own.
We are so grateful to God for the provision He has given for us to have this incredible facility.
We hope this will be a real HUB to be used by all in our community. Please be a part of it.
