The Ark @ Crawcrook
Replacing the Robert Young Memorial Church on the main road through Crawcrook (Ryton, Tyne and Wear), the Ark @ Crawcrook is an exciting new venture by the Methodist Church in the area.
The Ark is a not for Profit Church Centre, with the Aim of being part of the local community! The Play Centre/ Sensory room is open to the public during the week (Mon, Wed, Thu & Fri: 9:00-3:00pm, Tuesdays: 9:00am- 1:30pm). On Saturdays the Ark can be hired out for Private parties.
Where possible the Ark supports local businesses/ charities and maintains an ethos of social and environmental responsibility. The Ark also supports vulnerable members of the community, by providing SNAP Play sessions (Special Needs Accessible Play) for families to enjoy and volunteering opportunities for adults with learning difficulties. We hope to expand our capacity in this area and continue to meet the needs of the community.
