The Bishopdale Community Trust was established in 1999 to support people in the northwest area of Christchurch, in particular Bishopdale.
We do this by:
Helping people feel part of the community
Offering a warm welcome, listening ear and a drink
Running weekly groups and activities
Operating Sundbye Community House as a drop-in community centre for locals
Publishing the quarterly Bishopdale Bulletin newsletter
Maintaining the Bishopale Directory which provides information on activities, groups and clubs, events, services, churches, schools, shops and businesses in the Bishopdale area.
Drop into Sundbye House any time for a hot or cold drink, meet old friends and make new ones.
Normal opening hours: Monday to Thursday from 10am till 3pm.
Festive period opening hours
Sundbye House officially closes on Thursday 19 December 2019.
The house will open and resume its usual program of activities on Monday 6 January 2020.
Between these dates the house will be opened by volunteers at the following times:
10am – 1pm, Monday 23 December
10am – 1pm, Friday 27 December
10am – 1pm, Monday 30 December
10am – 1pm, Friday 3 January
So if you find yourself at a loose end at any of these times, please come along and have a cup of tea with us!
A very merry Christmas to everyone and all the best for 2020.
