Crofton Park
The Undercroft Suite @ St Hildas Church

'The Undercroft'.... a suite of three rooms  under the chancel of St Hilda's Church entered from Brockely Road through double doors in the base of the tower. 

 'Old St Cyprian's Chapel', 'The Choir Practise room' and 'The Church Wardens Vestry' provide  great spaces for smaller groups, parties  and community activities and classes in addition to the Church hall and the chruch room. Old St cyprians Chapel ahs become our locla polling station.

The rooms are delightful surprise to many.
They were developed from the former weekday chapel and vestries by Fr S Bates  with the support of St Hilda's Congregation and Lewisham Borough council between. We started the project by collecting £5 notes ina jar at the Weekday Eucharist, selling  the old pews, and letting the chapel  sundays to a delightful small church serving mainly West Indian elders. We achieved two rounds of  faith small  grants form LBL  and a grant from a Church of England special community fund. Since then weve rasied everything ourselves  to achive  complete refurbishment with  modern lavtories - and a church office in the tower above.

St Hilda's Community wing 'Crofton Park Community Link' now  supports as many as 50 different activities for community health and social wellbeing  for all ages and kinds of people.
