Welcome to Freedom Centre

The Freedom Centre is a Community Hub on the Mereside Estate in Blackpool run by Freedom Church Mereside.

After years of being derelict the leadership team along with the local community have raised funds to renovate the former St Wilfrid’s Church Hall and give it back to the community as a place of social gathering and an access point to activities and support.

We Are Freedom Centre

The centre offers a warm welcome and a place where you can enjoy a good cup of coffee from Martha’s Kitchen whilst browsing around our Second Chance small charity shop. Our kitchen also offers a light menu of toasties, cakes and daily specials at very reasonable prices.
