A Vision for the Future

SPACE is an initiative to bring new life to the Suckley community by providing 21st Century facilities within the large well situated church building, offering this scattered rural village a much needed active hub, useful to all, including our adjacent primary school.

The SPACE charity was set up to transform the interior of Suckley Church in rural Worcestershire to create a flexible venue with modern facilities for use by all in our community.


Suckley’s annual family festival held in and around Suckley church.

Saturday 16th September 2023  3PM to 10PM

Planning for the 2023 Suckley BFG is well under way with lots of eclectic gift stalls, amazing beers, scrumptious food and fantastic music already booked. We’re very proud to announce that Worcestershire’s largest independent choir will also be performing.

Mark Saturday 16th September in your diary so as not to miss them at the BFG.

The Project

The building work inside the church space, is being carried out in phases. Phase 1 – the underfloor heating and laying of a new oak floor has been completed. We have raised £65,000 for the installation of a kitchen and an accessible toilet and work is due to start at Easter 2022.


To date, over £280,000 has been raised and to complete the project, a further £150,000 will be required to complete the community project, to include the community room, audio visual equipment and upgrading paths leading to the building. To make the most of the new versatile floor in the Nave we have bought new


Following consultation with the community, school and Diocese Advisory Committee, the Chancellor of the Diocese has granted all the necessary permissions to carry out the changes within the church.

Centre of the Community

The building is well placed to become the heart of the community. The school next door now has the space needed for PE and parent/pupil gatherings  The toilet and kitchen now planned for Easter 2022, is vital for the safety of any activity in these times of Covid-concern, and will enable the Space and proposed community room to be available for wider village use.
