Who we are

Situated at the heart of the Borough of Lewisham, St Laurence Centre is a purpose-built community hub that has been serving the people of Lewisham and Catford for over 50 years.

The high standard of accommodation at the Centre makes our unique venue suitable for professional and commercial organisations as well as community groups and charities. St Laurence Centre is also appropriate for religious ceremonies of all faiths and none.

The Main Hall

The Main Hall is our largest space, holding 120 people comfortably – perfect for large conferences, public meetings or life events. It has a fully equipped commercial kitchen available for use by the hirer or their caterers.

We have 120 chairs and 40 rectangular tables, available for use. There is a noise limiter in the hall to ensure noise is kept to a respectable, comfortable level for all hirers of the centre. A PA system is available along with large stage suitable for presentations.

Jubilee Room

The Jubilee Room has been recently refurbished and can comfortably accommodate up to 40 people. Perfect for small conferences, team away days or even an intimate family supper. Equipped with a small kitchenette (sink, hot water tap & microwave) the Jubilee Room also has a screen for a projector. There are three full sized windows that fill this space with light but it can be turned into a ‘black-box’ space with our blackout curtains.
