In the 1980s as new housing areas grew up on the outskirts of Chester, there was a vision for a new church and community centre, and a partnership was formed between the Methodist and United Reformed churches and Great Boughton Parish Council.
Two congregations based in the city centre (Methodist Central Hall and Northgate URC) decided to unite and move to a new home to create the Caldy Valley Neighbourhood Church. A plot of land was donated to the Church and the Council by Sainsburys. As work on the building began, church services were held in local schools. The building was opened in 1984.
A Joint Management Committee formed of representatives of the Church and the Parish Council was established to run the Centre.
As Church and Community Centre activities grew, more space was needed and extensions were added.
We celebrated our 35th Anniversary in 2019 and remain committed to the vision of providing a place of welcome and meeting for church and community at Caldy Valley.
We will be celebrating our Ruby 40 years next March 2024 with some fabulous events so please keep an eye open for these.
