In 1984 the church nave was partitioned off to provide facilities which together became known as St Mary’s Social Centre.
The Social Centre consists of a downstairs room adjacent to the worship area which has a kitchen, and a large upstairs room with a wooden floor suitable for a wide range of functions, including Quiet Days and Retreats. There are, however no toilet facilities upstairs.
During term time the building is used by the Cottonstones Pre-School Playgroup from 9am until 3.15pm each weekday. They can be contacted by phone on 01422 823403 or message them on facebook.
On Monday nights the centre is used by Rainbow and Brownie groups and on Wednesday evenings there is a keep fit group.
In the autumn, the centre is used on Tuesday evenings by the Ripponden Pantomime group.
