St Andrew's Centre

The project to create the St Andrew's Centre has had at its heart the desire for Hertford St Andrew to improve the well-being of people around it. To do this, our aim is to add to the range of activities that already exist and do them in a more structured way, in partnership with voluntary and community organisations.  The Hertford St. Andrew Community Trust (HStACT) is responsible for the ongoing running and maintenance of the Centre, with most of the work being done by volunteers. 

How do I find the St Andrew's Centre?


The Centre is tucked away behind St Andrew's Church on St Andrew Street, Hertford. As you approach the Church from the street, follow the path around to the back of the Church (on the right) and you will find the main entrance to the Centre there.

Information and bookings

There is a large hall, (approx  12m x 5.75m) which can be split into two spaces, (approx 6m x 5.75m)  a large kitchen, two accessible  toilets and also an art/utility room. The projector, screen and sound system, with loop, in the main hall,  are ideal for use with meetings and presentations, plus Wi-Fi is available.  The hall ceiling is 2.84m high but there is a projector hanging down at the far end of the hall which reduces the height to 2.50m.

 The Centre also benefits from two separate entrances, which means that it is possible for different groups to use the Centre at the same time.

Upstairs there is a small room (the John Summers-Gill Room), which is mainly used by counsellors.

Hertford St. Andrew Community Trust

 
The HStACT Mission Statement:
"We're here to do everything we can to encourage, enable and engage with well-being
throughout our community in and around Hertford."

The project to create the St Andrew's Centre has had at its heart the desire for Hertford St Andrew to improve the well-being of people around it. To do this, our aim is to add to the range of activities that already exist and do them in a more structured way, in partnership with voluntary and communityHStACT logo full organisations, and by publicising them more effectively.

The extended, altered and refurbished Parish Hall and Vestries is now known as the St Andrew’s Centre and the Hertford St Andrew Parochial Church Council (PCC) has established a charitable organisation as the focus for the operations of the St Andrew’s Centre. The Hertford St. Andrew Community Trust (HStACT) is responsible for the ongoing running and maintenance of the Centre now the project is completed.

The Trust has had many informative discussions with local community groups and charities that work in the fields of mental health, support for carers, day-care for the elderly, bereavement support and counselling. We are doing what we can to accommodate many of these groups alongside some of the activities that we are already involved in.

More information about the Trust, and the Trustees, can be found here.

You can contact Hertford St Andrew Community Trust by emailing: standrewscentre@hotmail.com
