Main Image Based in St Werburghs in East-Central Bristol, we serve the local communities of Lawrence Hill, Ashley and Easton wards and communities of interest across the city. The Centre is managed by the St Werburghs Community Association, which aims to provide meeting spaces and facilities for individuals, community groups and voluntary organisations.

We focus on building mutually beneficial partnerships between groups and organisations in the community. In support of this, we run various events and projects, current to include Raking & Baking, Tai Chi for over 50's, Easy PC (computer classes), Picnic in the Park and we also have other organisations based in the Centre who are working within the local communities.

The Community Centre has been operating on this site since 1972 and in 1999 was registered as a charity and company limited by guarantee. In June 2010 we completed £1m Capital Project and in November 2010 we achieved the VISIBLE CommunitiesTM accreditation which is a quality systems standard for the charity and community sector distributed by Community Matters.
In November 2013 we won the Community Venue of the Year Award at 'Voscurs', Bristol's Voluntary & Community Sector awards. In January 2016 we have been awarded Silver in the Green Tourism 'Conference Venue' Category.

If you are looking to hire a fully accessible meeting room, run a regular class, hold a business conference or host a family party - St Werburghs Centre has plenty of space for it all.

The newly refurbished rooms are all wheelchair accessible. There is a large Hall with wooden floors and double height windows, a fully equipped commercial kitchen and a variety of medium size rooms suitable for classes, meetings or workshops. Our newly built, eco-friendly and modern annexe at the rear consists of four rooms with underfloor heating, which can be used either as community spaces, training rooms or offices.

The new annexe building has a bank of Photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight into power. There is a display that shows how much power we are generating, the total so far and the amount of CO2 saved. There is also a Sedum (grass) roof on the new annexe building. This provides a high level of insulation and in addition reduces the level of rainwater entering the drains. The walls are also well insulated with ‘Warmcell’ which is manufactured from 100% recycled waste paper. Ceiling lights in the annexe are also environmentally friendly, using sunlight tubes designed to capture and intensify natural daylight.

A summary of prices and description of all rooms can be found on our Facilities page or click here to view a PDF of our brochure.


Picnic In The Park 2017 !!

Community Garden Project

Our new exciting project is all about creating a buzz in the Centre, and outside!

Thanks to funds from the Big Lottery - Awards 4 All, Tesco - Bags of Help, Endsleigh Insurance and Cory Environmental Trust in Britain we began the transformation of our car park into a community garden, play and event space! Imagine lush greenery, kids playing and learning about plants and bugs, and some lovely seating in the sun! 

Have you got any ideas or comments? Would you like to donate towards the project or help with physical work? Please get in touch! We need plants, gardeners, volunteers to help with regular watering. E-mail Goska on director@stwerburghs.org.uk or pop into the Centre and talk to us.
