Welcome to Chapel Park Community Centre

Chapel Park Community Centre offers a variety of services to support people in the local community, including funded educational and wellbeing courses.

We are a not for profit registered charity, run for the benefit of the local community, based right in the heart of St Leonards - beneath the Baptist Church on Chapel Park Road.

We have an IT cafe, offering free access to the internet, printers and photocopier, as well as a large main hall, meeting rooms and a fully fitted kitchen to hire. Click link here to see pictures and details.

With the help of Sussex Community Foundation we are running a programme of fully funded courses, in addition to a range of pay-per-lesson activities. Please click this link or view our courses page.

A carer is someone who provides care and support to a family member or friend with a disability, mental or physical illness, substance misuse or someone who needs extra help as they grow older. You are caring for someone when the person you are looking after would really struggle without your support.

We have recently decorated our outside space to offer time to sit and reflect and enjoy our new planting.

We have also made some changes to our IT cafe to make it more comfortable, offering free access to the internet, printers and photocopier.

Our updated Cafe is now open, serving a selection of hot and cold drinks and snacks to enjoy, at affordable prices.

We have a number of rooms to hire, which are fully accessible by stairs or lift, including a fully fitted kitchen and sports hall - for details and photos please see our Facilities page, or use this link.

In addition to our funded courses, we are planning to run some events and workshops to help bring the community together after these difficult times.
