The Ark

For the past 7 years the Ark has been a place of welcome and hospitality for the community, acting as a church, soft play centre and café in the village of Crawcrook. As a church it has provided a different kind of place for people to explore questions of life and faith and the worship of God. The Ark has served the community in practical ways and provided a safe space where families have shared in celebrations and children have played and had fun.

It is with great sadness that we have decided to close this social enterprise. The financial situation means that the not-for-profit business which has operated within the Ark needs to close as the business is no longer viable in the present economic environment. We have now ceased to trade as from 3rd April 2020.
