The Trinity College Centre


The Centre was built in 1981-2, and has three separate halls; one of these is in permanent use as the base for the parish church of St George's Camberwell. There is a kitchen, an office, smaller meeting rooms and toilets. Outside there is a car park at the front and a playground at the rear. The building was paid for by a combination of funds raised by Trinity College and its members, the parish and diocese, and compensation money following the compulsory purchase and demolition of the original mission building.
