Opening in Spring 2021

@ St Thomas the Martyr Parish Church, Up Holland

This is a centre for EVERYONE in Up Holland and the surrounding area.

Up Holland Community Hub is an initiative designed to develop the historic church building into a place to be used by, and to serve, the whole community of Up Holland and the surrounding area. The Hub is of the community and for the community and the development group has included people from church, parish council and community.


The plan is to retain and enhance the wonderful historical features of the church but also to make it a more modern venue for the wider community.

Significant changes have been made inside the church including

  • removal of some pews at the back of church

  • re-arrangement of side pews to include tables and Wifi access

  • installation of a new kitchen and counter at the back of church

  • purchase of café tables and chairs

  • allocation of a space for a Post Office counter

  • installation of new screen and sound system with surround sound for a cinema


The Post Office will be opening on Monday March 15th 2021 at 12pm
