Welcome to the Copleston Church & Community Centre

Welcome to the Copleston Church and Community Centre, a space for everyone in the heart of Peckham. Every week, more than 500 people join us for activities from Thai-Chi to community singing. This multi-cultural, multi-purpose community centre grew around Copleston Church, a joint Church of England and United Reformed Church with a thriving congregation.

Built during the rapid development of south London in Victorian times, Copleston is tucked away down a side street. It's worth making the  effort to find us and try something new - you might become a regular! Many of our groups are run by local residents and some have been going for over 35 years.

Alongside the church, people of all faiths and none join in activities from Scout groups to Soca classes and drumming workshops. We also have a community space available to hire at affordable rates for events and activities. 

We have looked closely at the new Government guidelines relating to the Tier 2/High Level category. As a Covid-secure community facility providing charitable services of therapeutic benefit, we are confident that we are able to continue to offer our  current programme of activities with the necessary adaptations and booking systems. Unfortunately there will be no opportunity to socialise in the building before or after groups.

Any groups that have not yet returned to the centre and any groups hiring space at the centre will also be required to adhere to the guidelines.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team.
