History

Beulah Stone laying at Rawmarsh Methodist Chapel in 1908The foundation stones of the building were laid on Easter Monday 1907 and the building opened in July 1908.

 

In 1976 the building was redeveloped to include a hall, kitchen and meeting rooms downstairs and an upstairs used for worship. Between 1998 and 2000 a partnership was developed between Rawmarsh Methodist Church and various local community groups committed to, or interested in, use of the building.

The High Street Centre Ltd was registered as a company limited by guarantee in 2002 and has charitable status. It aims to improve the quality of life for the residents of Rawmarsh and Parkgate by providing a modern, attractive and accessible premises and facilities to meet the needs of the community.

In 2004 phase one of the refurbishment plans has been completed and in February 2007 a 25 year lease was signed between the Methodist Church and the High Street Centre allowing the Centre to operate as a social enterprise to provide facilities and develop services for use by and for the local community.

Phase two of the redevelopment was opened in 2008 which included new kitchen, car park and training facilities. Since then improvement of the building has continued including a new lift, sound proofing and a project to replace the heating system and install secondary glazing.

The current Hall Development project is underway and should be completed in May 2016. We are grateful to the funders of this work:
