The refurbished Portobello Community Centre was reopened on Saturday in glorious sunshine. Sally Martin told the story of the Centre over the years, its role at the heart of the estate, and the bright future that lies ahead. Thank you to everyone who came and enjoyed the party.
All the main groups that use the Centre were represented:
Inspiring Community Youth Groups,
Fusion Youth Group for those with Autism and Aspergers,
Portobello Craft & Camera Group,
Strong Tower Christian Centre,
Stride Theatre Group,
CAP Lounge Drop in with Lunch.
A big thank you to all those who made this possible, especially Matt Taylor of ATP Builders for the excellent work they did, David Cross for the beautiful new graffiti wall with the help of a team of Portobello children, and David Penney for the stylish gates.
The project has been overseen by Portobello Community Forum, who will run the Centre, and the building will also house Christians against Poverty Debt Centre. ... See MoreSee Less

A beautiful new work of art, painted by Rachel Chapman has gone up in The Spring Café, depicting in the soft, pastel colours of dawn, a tree drawing up the life-giving water of Christ through the roots of prayer, to nourish the fruit of the Spirit.
Prayer requests can be made at any time by attaching them to our Prayer Tree on the counter. Every morning before the Spring opens, we pray these prayers. ... See MoreSee Less
Amazing painting, truly beautiful xxx
It's beautiful x
It has a lovely presence too..🥰
Glad you like it! There was quite a long planning process beforehand with Catherine and Rupert and a few others. We tried to make sure it represented what The Spring is about. I think we achieved that 😊
That is beautiful.
