Temple Park Centre (formerly William Temple Church) has been a community resource and a place of worship for over 50 years and is named after William Temple, who served as the Archbishop of Canterbury during World War II and who campaigned for social justice and reform during his life and ministry (click on his name to read more about William Temple).
Temple Park Centre is situated in the heart of the Manor Park community and offers a wide range of facilities for all the community. The Centre is now run by the Manor Church and Community Project which is a charitable organisation with a number of initiatives supporting people and families who live in the Manor district.
Over the years local people have used the building to gather together, celebrate and enjoy themselves. The current improvements to Temple Park Centre and those planned for the future build on this spirit of working together for the benefit of the whole community.
During the past few years the building has been progressively upgraded (see the news blog) and we have plans for future developments once funds become available
A major refurbishment of Temple Park Centre was completed during the 2020 lockdown. Details of this work, including a video of the transformation and the grants which have enabled this exciting new development, can be found here:
