Welcome To Cornerstones Centre For The Community

Cornerstones is part of the Methodist Church in Chester-le-Street and was launched in September 2010 in a new purpose-built set of premises which cost around £1m, and which were  funded by a combination of grants and local fund raising. Cornerstones represents a permanent commitment by the whole Church to reach out and become more involved in the life of the community in Chester-le-Street and for the community to share in the broader life of the Church.

Since its opening many new community based activities have been introduced to supplement the activities run by the Church. These include a wide range of educational, training, recreational and social opportunities for all ages and abilities. Check out the Activity page for further information on anything that interests you.

All rooms are Wi Fi enabled, the building offers full disabled access and the varied room sizes, some with kitchen facilities, combine to make the centre an attractive venue for business users wanting to arrange a conference or just looking for a meeting place. For the same reasons the centre is equally attractive for the private user and is proving popular for children’s parties and family social gatherings.

We are happy to announce that Cornerstone Centre for the Community at Chester-le-Street Methodist Church has been awarded National Lottery funding to continue with our work and commitment of the Church to reach out and become more involved in the life of the community of Chester-le-Street and for the community to be supported by the wider Church family. Thanks to the National Lottery for their support.
