This weekend, the Christ Church, Culmore, Muff and St. Peter’s (CCCMSP) Group of Parishes will gather to celebrate and give thanks for the recent refurbishment of their Parish Centre, on the Culmore Road.
Over the past nine months, more than £100,000 has been raised to finance the work, which brings the centre up to the necessary health and safety standards. Among the improvements are a new kitchen, toilets, heating system and internal doors, and new flooring has been laid throughout. The building has also been painted inside and out, and new insulation fitted.
The money for the refurbishment was raised through donations from parishioners and groups who already use the centre, and with funding from the Garfield Weston Foundation and Awards for All.
The Rector of the Christ Church, Culmore, Muff and St Peter’s Group of Parishes, Archdeacon Robert Miller.
The public are invited to visit the Parish Centre this Saturday, 6th February, between 2.30pm and 5.30pm, to see the improvements. Existing user groups will be putting on demonstrations and providing information for people who wish to enquire about classes. Refreshments will be served throughout, and the afternoon will finish with a Service of Celebration and Dedication at 5pm.
A number of local groups already use the centre weekly, including Zumba, Weight Watchers, Irish Dancing, Baby Sensory and a Quilting Class. It is also used by the parish badminton group, bowls group, Sunday School and Mothers’ Union. Throughout the year, other groups use the centre for fundraisers, meals, parties and youth events. They include Mencap, the City of Derry & District Gardening Society, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Limavady Grammar School, Badgers and the Church of Ireland.
The Parish Centre can be hired for weekly classes or one–off events. Please contact the Parish Administrator for more information on 7135 8925.
