Originally the village school, the building was purchased by St. Peter’s for use
as church rooms. Over the last twenty years it's been well used by many people. But
it was looking a bit tired and needed work doing on it.
We wanted it to shout welcome. We wanted to put in new toilets, better access, better
lighting and flooring and a new kitchenette so that the two halls can be used independently
and welcome more people. We want to spruce the place up so it's cleaner and brighter.
Most of this work has been done over the Summer and is continuing.
Thanks to generous gifts from church members and a small grant from Mid Sussex District
Council, we now only have had toraise £75,000 to complete this. Quite a large part
of this money has been raised but we still need to find the rest. This work will
make a big difference to the welcome people feel and how the centre can be used.
St Peter's Church Centre is a place of fond memories for many villagers who went
to school there.
