Parnell Community Centre is a very busy place. Every year thousands of people pass through the centre's doors to ...
take community classes, participate in social activities, such as Bridge and Mah Jong; use the centre as their venue for meetings, weddings, seminars, church services and other gatherings; shop at the weekly Parnell Farmers' Market and the monthly Craft Harvest market; find books at Parnell Library; seek free advice from Justices of the Peace; bring their babies to visit Plunket and embark on guided walks to nearby heritage icons.
Within Parnell Community Centre, Parnell Trust offers a rich programme broad range of classes and activities offering participants the stimulation of learning new ideas or skills, or simply enjoying the company of others in a relaxed and friendly setting.
- Classes at Parnell Community Centre cover a range of interests including culture and languages, culinary delights, ESOL, technology, healthy mind and body, arts and crafts, and music, rhythm and dance. Topical workshops are often added to our programme during the year, such as a recent series of Sustainable Urban Living workshops in 2016.
