HOLY TRINITY PARISH CENTRE

COOKHAM-ON-THAMES


A Bit of History

The Holy Trinity Parish Centre was originally the vicarage for Holy Trinity Church.  Parts of the building date back to Queen Anne.  The previous The Kitchen Areachurch hall was situated in the Maidenhead Road and had been purchased by the Parishioners who paid a shilling a week to obtain it.  In the early 1980's the old Church Hall was sold off for development and a new vicarage was built for Holy Trinity.  However, the old vicarage was converted into a magnificent Parish Centre.  The upstairs is now flats and the ground floor has two main rooms and a kitchen available for the people of Cookham to hire.

 

There are two rooms for hire, the Rogers Room which will accommodate 60-70 people and the Briggs Room, which is slightly smaller, which accommodates around 25-30 people.  There is also a spacious kitchen which leads onto the Briggs Room.  There are  plenty of chairs and tables available if required.

 

There is a convenient car park behind the Parish Centre and also overflow vehicles can be parked in the Paddock adjacent to the Church.  The facilities are used regularly by several local groups.
