What is the Open Door Centre?


In the six years since the Centre opened in May 2017 there had been some 50,000 visitors to the Centre. About half of these are people who have dropped in to the Centre’s café open Tuesday to Friday. They have been able to enjoy the delicious snacks and lunches which are available, the full menu of which can be seen at this link. 


Local community groups including the Chipping Barnet Day Centre for the Elderly, Fitability, Fitability LEGS, Kumon Maths, as well as informal groups meet regularly in the Centre.


The Centre is also used for community group meetings, celebratory lunches, teas and children’s parties.

The Trustees of the Centre (see link for details) are continuing their plans for the final phase of the redevelopment of the Centre. This will see the insertion of a new first floor and the extension of the ground floor. 


The ground floor extension will enable the Centre to cope more efficiently with the many visitors who drop in each week. As a result, there will be more space in the kitchen for food preparation as well as more storage space.


The Open Door Trustees working alongside Christ Church are hoping that the the new first floor will give space to develop compassion ministries serving our local community.
