14 Jul Magherafelt Parish Centre
Welcome to Magherafelt Parish Centre
Set in the heart of the community the newly built Magherafelt Parish Centre offers a wide range of facilities for use by the entire population of Magherafelt. Located in King Street, the Centre has an impressive view of the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption. Throughout the split-level building careful planning and design has allowed for a spacious yet modern, fully accessible community centre.
The centre was officially opened on Sunday 13th September, 2009, when the parishioners of the parish had the opportunity to explore their new community facility (for a review of the Official Opening click here). It is anticipated that over time the Centre will play a key role within Magherafelt and the surrounding area offering a range of group activities, social entertainment and events to promote and encourage community spirit and involvement.
The Centre itself has a wide range of excellent facilities.
O’Byrne Hall – Named after Monsignor Chris O’Byrne, former Parish Priest, this state-of-the-art hall can comfortably seat up to 400 people. The hall is equipped with a movable stage and impressive lighting and sound systems. It is expected that the hall will accommodate concerts, dances and plays within the parish along with conferences, bowls and other activities.
Coffee Shop – Located at the front of the Centre is a friendly, relaxing coffee shop. Facing the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption the coffee shop will allow visitors the chance to enjoy a cuppa and a light snack while chatting with friends and family. The coffee shop will also be used to accommodate funeral lunches, various parties and other relevant events.
Board Room – A stylish Board Room, located beside the Coffee Shop, seats up to sixteen people. This will accommodate meetings of the Pastoral Council, Finance Committee, Centre Management Committee and other parish groups. The Board Room, as with all facilities within the Centre, is available for hire.
The Green Room – Situated close to the main hall, the Green Room offers a comfortable space for performers to relax and prepare before performances. This room can also be used for less formal meetings.
Activities Room – St Patrick’s Club is based within the Centre. Located at the back of the Centre the club boasts five full size snooker tables along with a kitchen and a meeting room.
The Parish Centre also houses showering facilities, a data projector, two kitchens and a reception area where people can sit and relax before enjoying events in the main hall.
The Centre itself is now open for enquiries and bookings. Anyone interested in booking one of its many excellent facilities should contact the Centre Manager: Pat Bradley on (028) 7963 1726, 078 7252 5938
