The Dorking Christian Centre aims to be at the heart of the local community. With social activities throughout the week as well as providing space for the Community Fridge, Community Wardrobe and Foodbank, we are a busy, thriving building in the centre of Dorking.
Our Centre Chaplain, David Pitkeathly, aims to be a caring presence, supporting all who use the Centre. He runs activites helping those with Dementia and those struggling with their mental health. Click here for his contact details.
Find out more about these services and activities here at the Dorking Christian Centre, on our What's On page.
The Centre Cafe aims to ensure our local community has the option of an affordable hot lunch Monday to Friday. The morning cafe serves tea/coffee & cake from 10.30am, and great value home cooked lunches from 12.00 until 1.30pm.
All served by our wonderful cooks and a team of friendly volunteers. We hope to see you in the cafe soon.
See Centre Café page for more details.
For people who would otherwise be on their own on Christmas Day, we welcome them here for a full Christmas lunch.
The Centre is owned by the local Methodist Circuit, and supported through a covenant between the Methodists and Anglicans at St. Martin's Shared Church. We are actively involved in Dorking Churches Together, and building links into the wider community.
We aim to cover all operating costs from the cafe, lettings, and other services that we run, but inevitably finances are tight. Essential maintenance and upgrade work to the property has left our vital reserves much depleted, so we are currently in serious fund raising mode. If you would like to make a donation, or have ideas for fundraising we would be pleased to hear from you. We are eligible to claim Gift Aid on all donations from UK taxpayers, contact the Centre Managers for more information.
