Working in the community, for the community
St Mary’s Millennium Centre is attached to, and in the grounds of the beautiful Parish Church of St Mary The Virgin, of West Derby Village. A Grade 2 listed building in the Gothic style, the Church was completed, and opened in 1856.
The Millennium Centre itself, began as an idea many years ago, but did not begin to progress until late 1991 when a working party was formed to produce a feasability report for a Community Centre in West Derby.
After a lot of hard work by a number of individuals and assistance from the Church, the Trustees of the old Village Hall, the Millennium Fund and parishoners, the funding was put in place to proceed with the project.
The Centre was dedicated by the Bishop of Liverpool on Sunday 29th October 2000 and was finally opened for business by HRH Duchess of Gloucester on 2nd May 2001.
The Centre is a registered Charity and is managed by a board of Trustees, with the able assistance and support of our Administrator, Caretakers and Cleaner, who maintain the highest standards of cleanliness and presentation.
We are justifiably proud of the Centre, which is a vibrant and well used facility for St Mary’s Church and the wider community. We have a wide and varied clientele, ranging from baby ballet and martial arts to help groups, church groups, artists, quilters and many more. Contact details of all of our classes / groups / services, can be found on our users page.
We have a number of rooms available for hire in a range of sizes and capacities, together with a fully fitted “hot” kitchen. We are also a single level building, with baby changing facilities, disabled toilet access, and are fully able to meet the needs of those who may have mobility isues.
More information is available on our facilities page.
