Our Partners

Our building is in constant use as a venue for meetings, choirs, keep fit, children’ parties etc. As well as these, we have a few organisations who are based on the premises. We are mutually grateful for what we offer each other, and are continually working to support each other in serving the local community.

Shirley Pre-School

Shirley Pre-School has been running for many years and provides an experience-rich play setting for young children. We enjoy our links with the staff and families, and work together to run ‘Tadpoles’ toddler group each Wednesday afternoon during term time. Our ‘Connect’ project has recently upgraded the cloakroom and toilet facilities used by the pre school and has constructed a safe outdoor play area.
