The Mathiesen Centre was opened in 1978 by the Church Army and bears the name of an esteemed leader of the faith. The building was passed to Milton Keynes Council in the late 80's where it was operated a Youth centre for many years. During this period a group of volunteers assisted in the management of the facility on behalf of Milton Keynes Council.
In 2015 Milton Keynes council were looking for ways of ensuring that community facilities were self sustaining and created the Community Asset Transfer scheme. This approach saw suitable buildings, recreation areas and sports facilities passed back to the community through a application bid process. The existing management committee were keen to ensure that the building and its many users would continue to be able to access this much needed community space. In order to put forward a bid application a new charity was formed by the committee named the Mathiesen Centre Trust.
A successful bid was put forward and the building and land were transferred to the Trust in 2016. From this point the Trust has made major investments in the building to further enhance the space for its diverse set of users.
The Mathiesen Centre Trust provides facilities to local groups and individuals seeking to enhance our community through sports, education and social aims. We have a number flexible spaces which can be hired for both regular and adhoc use. Our sports hall is equipped with a professional fast sports floor and is marked for a number of differing indoor sports and fitness uses.
