Welcome to the Tabernacle 2017

Community

The Tabernacle is a community space for everyone to use. We look for ways to support the interests and needs of local people and regularly hold events that are open for all.

At the Tabernacle we run a number of ongoing community projects alongside special events.  If you would like to find out more about any of the events on offer please get in touch. 

We are currently supporting:

  • PATCH: We accept donations of food and essentials, on behalf of PATCH, which are used to help those in need. 
  • Purple Shoots: Purple Shoots and the Tabernacle are working together to help secure the growth of small business startups.
  • Cruse: We are working with Cruse to provide help and support for people dealing with bereavement. 

The Tabernacle Fellowship Group, which is linked to the Pembroke Story, holds monthly meetings on the last Thursday of each month. At this event members of the congregation and local community gather to share stories, poetry, experiences, memories and, most importantly, tea and cake! The group is relaxed and informal and about building friendships, support and strength as a group.
