The Rock and The Big Local have partnered together to offer communities St Peter’s, The Moors and beyond open access to our facilities every term time Monday afternoon, 3.30pm – 5.30pm. When a team of young people, youth workers and The Big Local workers convert the facility into a working Community Cafe. Including a seating area, high chair facilities, children’s play area and more.

After a successful pilot in July 2014, the Community Cafe was decided to be a regular event for the local community to benefit from. The long term idea is to convert the inside of St Peters Church (part of The Rock’s facilities) into “St Peters Centre” – giving young people the opportunity to have hands on work experience, gain accredited qualifications and skills. Whilst the local community and businesses benefit from having a fun Community Cafe on their door step, meeting room space and access to more activities.
The St Peter’s Centre will provide a space that will be open to wider opportunities.
