The Multifaith Prayer Space and Community Room are operated by the Church of England Parish of East Greenwich with the intention of serving the local community through the provision of these spaces for religious worship and community development.
There has been a multifaith chaplaincy on Greenwich Peninsula since 2003. Initially the chaplaincy provided chaplaincy to the O2 construction site and in local workplaces. From 2010 there was a temporary Prayer Space in portacabin accommodation near the O2 and then, from 2013, beside the Emirates cable car.
The Prayer Space is open to all faith groups to use for their own worship and prayer. It is also open daily for drop in prayer staffed by a team of multifaith chaplains. The Community Room is open to people of all faiths and none for activities and events that build up the local community.
The Prayer Space and Community Room is provided by Knight Dragon as part of the provision under the section 106 agreement for the Greenwich Peninsula development. It is licenced to the Parochial Church Council of the Parish of East Greenwich (PCC) who operate the spaces
A regular advisory Forum will be held to which all faith groups and any interested parties are invited to attend in order to comment, question and hold the PCC to account for providing equal and fair access and to give feedback.
A small team from the PCC take responsibility for the Prayer Space and Community Rooms.
