Welcome to St Pauls Learning Centre
St Pauls Learning Centre is a vibrant community hub providing well managed, affordable and attractive meeting rooms, conference facilities, learning and office space.
The SPLC Open Day “Learning for Living” on 17th September was a great success. The afternoon kicked off with some fantastic lively samba drumming and then Cllr Asher Craig formally opened the event with a short speech which highlighted that 2016 is the Year of Learning and that Bristol was the first city in England to become part of the UNESCO global network of Learning Cities.
Asher talked about the centre’s plans to grow into a vibrant bustling hive of activity: one in which everyone feels welcome: one of which everyone can feel a sense of ownership.
The Centre has a role in promoting community cohesion: the community that lives together, learns together.
The Centre was certainly bustling on Saturday. Here’s just a taste of what went on:
Lisa Blackwood cooked up a storm in the kitchen and her goat curry, jerk chicken and dumplings were very popular. We are very grateful to her for stepping in at the last minute.
The art and craft rooms on the second floor were full of people who were trying out printing, pottery, pinhole and cyanotype photography, and being shown how to make light catchers or Xmas tree decorations out of stained glass.
The Inner City Health team were providing free health checks including blood pressure tests, and offering healthy living advice.
The Repairs Café ran in the workshop and fixed various things for people
There were all sorts of organisations sharing their information on courses and activities, support and advice
And, in the hall, Anna Rose was running a healing fair. You could experience Reiki, or have a massage, all for free!
The aim of the day was to welcome new people into the centre to find out what is happening here: to find out how they could get involved, find an interesting new hobby or learn key skills such as English or numeracy.
The event was also to promote the rental of our fantastic meeting and training rooms. We have two Art Rooms, an incredible community darkroom (with ten enlargers), a workshop, a purpose built crèche, a community garden.

The St Pauls Learning Centre logo is based upon the Sankofa, a symbol that represents the importance of learning from the past. Sankofa is a word in the Twi language of Ghana that translates as "Go back and get it" (san - to return; ko - to go; fa - to fetch, to seek and take) and also refers to the Asante Adinkra symbol represented either by a bird with its head turned backwards taking an egg off its back, or as a stylised heart shape.
