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.
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.
