St Werburghs Community Centre Membership

Our members give voice to the celebrations and challenges of the Bristol community, sharing their experiences that help shape our Community Centre. Our Association makes this possible through the running of the Centre.  From our projects to our events and activities, to its wider member groups, it prides itself in being an inclusive organisation.

The Community Centre is not political or religious which allows it to be used by people of all faiths, cultures, sexual orientation, ethnic backgrounds, abilities, ages, and from all walks of life. Class teachers, individuals, charities, community and voluntary groups may all become members.

Membership Benefits:

  • Discounted room hire
  • Taking part in surveys and focus groups
  • Fundraising to support our community project work
  • Receiving our community newsletter throughout the year.
  • A right to vote at the Annual General Meeting, as an individual or through a group. Each member group has as an opportunity to nominate their representative to join St Werburghs Community Association and get actively involved in the Centre’s management.
