About The Centre St John's Street

The Centre is a welcoming town centre venue offering three spaces for hire. We are suitable for a wide range of uses and offer favourable rates for charities/community services and activities.

Our aim is that The Centre is accessible to all. It has been designed to be wheelchair friendly with a level access WC and wide doorways. We have a hearing loop and baby changing facilities. The Centre also houses the Just Traid shop and caf_.

The building is a beautifully restored former school with period features. Naturally light and airy with high ceilings and wooden floors; it also has exposed brickwork, contemporary colours and lighting. We are five minuteswalk of bus and railways stations and long stay car parking.

Our Charity Bury St. Edmunds Ecumenical Centre Trust (BECT) is a registered charity (1099687) and was set up specifically to support The Centre as a local education and community centre. It leases the building from St John School Centre Trust and is governed by appointed Trustees.

The Charity aims to improve the health and well-being of everyone in the community and encourage them to take part in a range of activities, services and facilities within The Centre, as well as preserve the building as a community venue. The charity's overall mission is one of Christian service and witness to the community. Through the activities of the Just Traid shop and caf_ we also seek to relieve poverty, particularly in developing countries.
