The Community Centre was originally St. Sampson’s Salvation Army Citadel. The Salvation Army invested in renovating the centre to house a cafe and charity shop
The Community Centre, Cafe & Charity Shop are open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday 9:30am - 2pm (Closed Thursday's) and open on Saturday's 9:30am - 12 noon
The Guille-Alles Library in St Peter Port have set up a branch library in the Community Centre, which is staffed by Salvation Army volunteers and is open on Wednesdays and Fridays 10am-12:30pm. Books and talking books can be borrowed and exchanged on a regular basis.
A continually-changing supply of good quality clothing, shoes, toys, bric-a-brac and books is available in the Charity Shop. The prices are kept affordable and experience has proved that the charity shop is not just a place to buy goods – a listening ear is sometimes all a person needs – and the staff are aware, willing and able to provide this.
We regret that we cannot accept electrical items, hardback books, child car seats, cycling helmets, suitcases, mattresses or furniture
The café offers a variety of low-cost meals and snacks. There is a regular daily menu and specials are also on offer and written on the board. The café is a place to find friendship, companionship and good food in a warm and inviting ambience. Snacks, hot food and homemade cakes are produced on the premises most days
