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.
