A little history
Hyson Green is one of the 88 most deprived areas in the country - with high unemployment and poverty levels. The members of Boulevard United Reformed Church saw the need in the area around them and the Bridge Centre was the church's response: a bridge between the church and the community! The Bridge Centre is located in the basement of the church; Opened in July 1991 after three year's planning by church leaders; Boulevard URC is a church with a small membership, but almost every member helps with the running of the drop-in centre; The centre would not be able to continue without the commitment of the volunteers from church and wider community.
