Cleveleys Community Centre and Church

Business Logo

Formerly the Frank Townend Centre off Beach Road, this is the heart of the community with events and activities for everyone, plus rooms to hire, and the home of weekly services for Cleveleys Church

 

At Cleveleys Community Centre and Church you can always be sure of a warm welcome.

From the trustees and volunteers who run the centre and from the individual groups who use it!

Cleveleys Community Centre and Church is the new name for the former primary school building on Beach Road, which was known as the Frank Townend Centre. Cleveleys Community Centre has taken over the running of the community centre from Wyre Council, to make sure it continues in its vital role as the heart of the community and a meeting place, offering something for everyone with varied classes and activities.

 Foyer at Cleveleys Community Centre

 

Under the new management you’ll see some changes taking place – the entrance foyer (above) has been decorated and is now a bright and airy space, with tables and chairs to welcome visitors and provide somewhere to sit and wait for your friends or to simply pop-in for a chat and a brew. Everyone is welcome!

 

There are groups and classes here for all kinds of things. There are art and dancing classes, Residents groups, police and public meetings, Kumon classes and even dog obedience – you’ll find something for everyone and all the groups who use the building are always looking for new members!

One room holds up to 30 people arranged in rows, another two rooms can be used separately with up to 30 people each or opened up into one bigger room, and the hall is suitable for large public meetings of up to 100 people.

 

Included in the room hire are tea and coffee making facilities in the kitchen (no food provided), along with facilities for you to use outside catering for meals and parties.

Cleveleys Community Centre is also home to Cleveleys Community Church

 

Services and meetings are held there each week. Family service, every Sunday morning at 10.30am

 

Sunday Services at Cleveleys Community Church are comprised of powerful worship and a life changing message. Both are consistent with today’s culture. Worship is led by a live band and will occasionally involve drama and performing arts and the like. The Life Changing messages are mostly focused on applying the Bible to everyday lives. Children are very welcome, bring them along with you! The preaching style is always personal and very relational. If you are curious, you’ll soon be able to check out podcasts and listen to/download messages from their own website.

 Communion is shared  regularly and throughout the year there are baptismal, child-dedication and membership enrolment services.

If you are attending Cleveleys Community Church for the first time, you will be very welcome. Stop for a chat and a coffee after the service in the foyer coffee bar.

Pastor Stephen Scholes is the Senior Pastor of Cleveleys Community Church. Together with his wife Debbie and the leadership team they organise a full diary of activities both for the church and the Community Centre.

Together as a church, they adopt the standard Evangelical Statement of Faith.

New Owners for Cleveleys Community Centre

Cleveleys Community Church and Centre took over management of the Kensington Road venue in 2010 while the council retained responsibility for maintenance and repairs.

The partnership has been a great success with community usage increasing greatly in the years since and a wide range of classes and activities for all ages now on offer, along with room hire and catering facilities.

Councillor Alan Vincent, Deputy Leader and Cabinet member with responsibility for estates at Wyre Council, said: "Cleveleys Community Church and Centre has been running the building since October 2010 and during that time the number of groups using it has increased. I'm confident that success will continue because of their drive, enthusiasm and commitment to the community."

Reverend Stephen Scholes, Minister of Cleveleys Community Church, said: "Since taking over the centre we've built it up to become a focal point for the community - it is used for everything from educational classes and art groups to dog training and blood donations.

"Once we have complete ownership we intend to do more of the same and add to what's available, and to carry out renovations to make it an even better place. The building will always be used as a community centre and church for the people of Cleveleys."

The deal includes a restriction on the future of the centre to community use only under the Local Government Act 1972, which allows local authorities to dispose of property for less than normal market value where it will help secure the social wellbeing of the area.

As a result the building has been valued as a community asset and will be sold as such, freeing up funds to finance future council spending.

Wyre Council is expecting a shortfall in funding of around £3m by 2018 and continues to review every aspect of how the council operates, whilst protecting frontline services.

At The Heart of the Community

Cleveleys Community Centre is managed by a team of volunteers with the aim of being at the centre of the community.

It's about providing a place for people to go and make friends, to join in with different activities and events, have a bite to eat and a brew, and just generally feel at home and find someone to have a natter to and something to do. 

If you're looking for something to do they're always on the look out for people who can volunteer an hour or two of their time each week to help with the community centre activities - like locking up and unlocking the building, and generally being on hand to help. If you'd like to be part of the team by all means get in touch and find out more. 

Cleveleys Community Centre

Originally built as Beach Road School, the building which was converted to the Frank Townend Community Centre is now Cleveleys Community Centre and Church.
