The Common Room will transform St Lawrence’s church into a new type of shared space, made and shaped collectively by the community, and run on the principles of collaboration, connection and resourcefulness. With a co-operative membership model you would have access to the space, to meet people, experiment with ideas and start new projects.

Common Soup

Common Soup is based on Sunday Soup, combining communal meals with crowd-funding for projects – as well as creating a great opportunity to bring people together. Share a meal & all income from tickets is given as a grant to support a project the participants vote on. The first Common Soup take place on Wed 28th May & was a great success! Get in touch if you are interested in making this a regular Common Room activity.
