The Community Centre has been operating on our Bryndwr site for 25 years. Originally being operated as the St Stephen’s Community Centre as part of St Stephen’s Church. St Stephen’s became part of The Village when it formed in 2014. We love being part of this community and doing our bit in making this area of our city a great place to be. Check out what’s on below!
What’s on at Bryndwr
The Village Market
Each first Saturday of the month in our Bryndwr building, we run a pop-up market which is now into its third year! It continues to be a place where people gather to buy, catch up, donate or just hang out together. There is a group who meet to knit & chat and there’s great coffee available.
The market has a focus of good quality second-hand household goods, toys, books; and from time-to-time, baking, jams, plants and our existing pre-loved clothing shop.
As with our clothing shop, we rely on the community to donate goods. Please do let us know if you’re having a clean out, downsizing or simply having a change around, we are happy to pick up & collect! Please contact the Bryndwr Office at 351 6664 for more information.

Every six weeks throughout the year, we host our popular foot clinic, which is designed to assist people who are struggling to tend to their feet. A friendly community has developed over the last 14 years. Feet are soaked, toenails are trimmed, followed by a soothing foot massage. We offer a cuppa and home baking. Places are limited, bookings are essential and volunteers are welcome. A generous Koha helps us to ensure a high standard of care.
Our after-school Kids Club meets on Mondays in term-time. This is a great little community for children to play, relax, and enjoy various activities. Afternoon tea is provided. This club has been operating for over eight years. A donation of $5 per session helps make this programme work. It’s cool!
